Modern Quilter | Workshop Teacher
My passion is to inspire quilters to explore the fun and creative freedom in making modern quilts.
I taught myself to quilt when I decided to make quilts for my wonderful nieces and nephews. Then, I found my first quilting home with the African American Quilters of Baltimore, who gently taught me the best quilting techniques to express my quilt vision.
I am excited about modern quilting because it is all about bringing individualism and free expression to the quilts we are making today.
I teach workshops to help quilters confidently and joyfully dive into modern quilting. My students say that my workshops inspire them to let their creative voice shine.

Happy Modern Quilting!
My newsletter is published 2 or 3 times a month and it's full of information about modern quilting.
I also announce my upcoming virtual workshops and other events to my Newsletter Subscribers first. Some classes are filled before announcing them to the general public.
