"I'm often asked how I got into teaching and writing about color for quilters. Like almost every other quilter, I began sewing when I was very young. (One of my more “memorable” projects was a doll quilt filled with cotton balls, because when I asked my grandmother what was inside a quilt, she said, “cotton.”) Degrees in textile and costume design and magazine journalism segued into a career writing books on color, decorating, remodeling, and soft furnishings for Sunset Books, as well as four quiltmaking books, and tech editing many more. My latest book, The Quilter’s Color Club (C&T), was released in spring 2011. I've been published in a number of quilt magazines (American Quilter, McCall’s Quilting and American Patchwork & Quilting, QNM, Love of Quilting, Threads, and Fabrications, a British quilting magazine) and have appeared on "Simply Quilts." I live in Grass Valley, the heart of Northern California’s Gold Country, in a house with a light-filled sewing room where I am always happy."
