Meet the designer

I started Cotton Way in 1990 and can't believe it has been over 30 years of designing, cutting, sewing, writing patterns, Quilt Markets and lots of late nights. I designed dolls for the first 10 years, including a series of dowel legged dolls called Long Leggins. Keep in mind this is when dolls were all the rage! Now I really enjoy designing quilts, bags, table runners and much more. Inspiration comes from many things, but a lot of times it comes from events in my life such as weddings, grandchildren, graduations, birthdays, etc. I also love to look at decorating magazines for new colors and trends. Chocolate is a must in the designing process! I have to admit I am completely hooked on M&Ms.

I love designing fabric with my daughter Camille (Thimble Blossoms) for Moda Fabrics. It's been a fun, exciting and unexpected adventure!

When I'm not busy designing, I am most likely  spending time with my family.  A few of my favorites include: the color red (I can't get enough of it lately!), taking pictures of my family and the beautiful view from my sewing studio. Life is good.

Happy Stitching,
