Employment
  • Freelance Writing Positions
    1991 - present
    As a self-employed author, I write about a few aspects of my life. They're unrelated, but each serves an important purpose. Quilting, for creative time and to help quilters understand the craft. Skin care, to help myself and others make the most of our skin, no matter what our age. Energy work, which I practice for clients and as a self-help mechanism, and massage therapy, which is an important gift for our body, mind and spirit.

    We produce skin-loving, palm-free soaps (doing our part to reduce rainforest decimation). You'll love our soaps, candles and cream and butter fudge, too. Chocolate candles are a favorite, and they're calorie free.

Introduction
I've authored quilting books for a few decades now, but also write about my other interests: skin care, massage therapy and alternative healing with energy. I love to create formulations for handcrafted soaps made with skin-loving oils and butters.

Gotta love Disappearing Nine patch quilt blocks, and my tutorial focuses on the different types of blocks you'll see when you slice the nine patches into four sections.

Charm Quilts are the ultimate scrap quilt, where no fabric is used more than once... maybe with one little exception. Learn the ins and outs of making a Charm Quilt.

Design walls aren't just for quilters and they needn't be huge. They can be portable or permanent and are easy to construct. They are indeed one of the best tools a quilter can own.

It's oh so easy to create a woven-look quilt with my Interlocking Chains pattern.

It's an easy quilt, it's colorful, and can be changed dramatically by choosing fabrics with a different them. Arbor Windows.

While any quilt pattern can be turned into a scrap quilt project, some quilts and blocks are perfect candidates.
