About me

Location California
Introduction I was born with a desperate need to make stuff. My professional background is in journalism, but these days, I mostly make art and modern quilts, and high-fiber 3D objects, ranging from polyhedra (doesn't everyone love a good truncated cuboctahedron?) to sculptures, bowls, yarmulkes, and, in the current Covid-19 emergency, face masks to donate. Most of my patterns and books are available in my etsy shop, at My new book about English Paper Piecing, Hexagon Star Quilts, published by Landauer, is available on Amazon, as is my book Stitch-a-hedron, about sewing polyhedra. My Judaic projects are at I love to hear from people! Email me at
