Introduction Quilt-making is my passion. I love the creative process. Why "Selvage Quilter?" See my book: "Quilts from the Selvage Edge" published by American Quilter's Society.

We have two grown sons: a photographer in NYC, and a retailer/artist in CT. Our DIL is studying to be a Physician's Assistant. We enjoy hiking, photography, watching movies, eating pizza, and visiting with family.
