About Moonlighting Quilts
Through my company, Moonlighting Quilts, I share my love of quilting locally in the DC metropolitan area and nationally at quilt shows and for quilt guilds. I lecture, I lead workshops, I teach art quilt classes locally, and I create quilts for clients, often celebrating special events or the life of a lost loved one. I also offer a few original patterns for sale and as workshops.
If you are in a quilt guild, I'd appreciate it if you'd forward my information to your program chair. I'd love to come see you!
If you are on a quilt show committee, run a quilt retreat, or own a quilt shop, I'd love to talk with you to see how we could work together.
A lot of the work I do is for clients. You may be celebrating a birth or a wedding. Perhaps you are commemorating the life of someone you've loved and lost. Maybe you have bags and boxes of clothing and artifacts that you can't bear to throw away but you're not sure how to use. I understand these projects are intensely personal. I'd be happy to talk with you and help you decide on your next steps. Let me help you tell the story in a celebration quilt.
