About Bird Haven Quilting
My Creative philosophy
I believe every quilt tells a unique story. My job to help my clients bring this story to life. I love consulting with clients and finding quilting designs that highlight the hard work and creative energy they’ve invested in their tops.
I believe the creative process brings perspective and joy to our lives. My aim is to increase the joy your quilt brings to your life.
I believe in embracing imperfections and allowing them to stimulate creativity. Who knows, they might end up being a design feature in a future project!
I believe in the power of making something every day, and that these small “maker efforts’” shape change in the world around us. Our creative efforts can help others see new possibilities.

My quilting style is influenced by the wonder and whimsy I find in the natural world just outside my door. I’ve been quilting for 18 years—initially for myself, friends, and charity projects—and, since 2018, professionally as a business. I quilt on an HQ Amara computerized machine affectionately named “Bessie.” I do computerized and free-motion longarm quilting. I make and sell a wide variety of quilted products, including custom quilts, placemats, table runners, throw pillows, baby blankets, zippered bags and more. My studio is a smoke and pet free environment where the maker in me joyfully creates on a daily basis. If you like my work, but want something a little different than what you see on my website, contact me to discuss other possibilities.
