About Barbara:
I’ve been sewing since I was a child but the Quilting Bug bit in 1985 and there’s been no looking back. My current “claim to fame” is my quilt Red and White–By the Numbers, selected as the commemorative quilt for the 40th Anniversary of the International Quilt Festival, Houston, TX. All the 2014 advertising, the catalogs, the show pins and beautiful tote bags, featured this quilt. Most important to me is my passion for teaching others to quilt.  I teach any where, any time, from beginners to advanced students. My classes are full of  information and fun.  My goal is to inspire others to make “gifts for generations yet unborn”.  If you want a blanket, go to the store–we are making family treasures.

My motto is:  “I want the fastest method that gives me the result I want”.  To that end, I am always working on tips and tricks to do things faster and better.  And I am happy to share!
