About 14 years ago a friend invited me to join a group of ladies to do a Saturday Sampler. I have to admit the major draw to say yes was that we were going to meet once a month for breakfast before going to the shop. With working and raising a family, my girlfriend time was very limited. So the idea of getting together once a month really appealed to me. Pretty soon we were having so much fun we decided we ought to do it twice a month so we signed up for another Saturday Sampler and invited more friends.
I started designing because I needed a way to put those 12 Saturday Sampler blocks together. Several years later we opened a quilt shop. We found certain fabrics people really liked but didn't know what to make. So I designed quilts to go with those fabrics. Then we wanted to do more Mystery Quilts, so I started designing those. Through it all, I realized I really enjoyed designing and wanted to share the designs with more people. So, here we are having even more fun, with more designs coming all the time!
