About Linen Closet Designs
I grew up in a family of quilters and stitchers and have been doing some kind of needlework my whole life. I really got into quilting in 1999 and set out to teach myself everything I could about the process. In 2008 I partnered with Kansas City Star Quilts and published my first book, Geese in the Rose Garden. I went on to produce 4 more books with KC Star. Book publishing led to magazine work and I started my design company, Linen Closet Designs in the fall of 2010. My work can be seen regularly in magazines such as Primitive Quilts and Projects, Quiltmania and Simply Vintage and my company releases new designs twice a year. I am pleased to announce that my sixth book, published by Quiltmania, made it's debut in April 2017. I am so blessed to be able to work doing what I love. 
 There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone who thinks they can't applique, leave a class excited about their new skill.

My love of hand work has led to many designs that feature needleturn applique and wool applique. I am also a hand quilter.Due to publishing demands I don't get to hand quilt as many quilts as I once did. I often do big stitch quilting on my quilts with pearl cotton.
