Welcome to My World


   My wife, Connie, (a quilter taught by her grandmother) has quilted our whole married life of over 40 years.  We have been to many quilt shops over the years and I originally began by cutting material for her once rotary cutters came into existence. Plus, we have been fortunate enough to inherit quilts from both sides of our families.

    As I was retiring from being a U.S. History and Government teacher for 35 years in Indiana and Florida, I became a Civil War re-enactor.  I realized that I needed something to keep me warm at night while camping.  So I started making quilts and also began selling quilts to other re-enactors.

  I have attended the AQS training classes to become a Professional Quilt Appraiser and have enjoyed working quilt shows in Florida, Indiana, and North Carolina.

   After I retired we sold our house and now live in our RV and travel all over the US visiting quilt shops and shows.
