Welcome to my world!
I am a quilter, designer, author, and teacher, with 30 years of quilting experience.
My approach to quilting is non-fussy and improv-friendly – meandering between modern, traditional, artsy and quirky. And speaking of meandering, if you can’t sew a straight line, you’ve come to the right place – I am STILL striving to achieve a consistent 1/4” seam allowance. Some day!
Quilting for me is a thrill sport. I never know exactly where each quilt will take me, but I have a blast in the process, learning a lot and usually laughing at the mistakes (Or, worst case scenario, sewing a patch over them).
I want people who use my tutorials, books and patterns, or who take my classes, to experience the same combination of relaxation, excitement, discovery and joy. Wherever you are in your quilting journey, beginner or experienced, I believe that you will have a good time and surprise yourself with what you learn and make from the ideas here.
My professional career was in journalism, and I’ve been blogging about quilting for many years, at gefiltequilt.com. You can also join me on Instagram.
