Laurel learned to sew before first grade. Her mother taught her to thread a needle and knot the thread to make clothes for her dolls. As the years progressed she learned to sew using a pattern. She took tailoring in high school and worked for the home-ec teacher. Quilting as a hobby didn’t arrive until her first son began school. She took her sewing machine and second son to a group making quilts for a local homeless shelter. It was a wonderful start.
Now she designs patterns and teaches quiltmaking with a specialty in appliqué. Check out her patterns here: Patterns
