Hello! I'm Donna, An Expert in Quilting
My career began with making cloth dolls for craft shows and being published on the cover of several major magazines for my original designs. I then freelanced sewing and craft ideas with a team of designers for Ben Franklin magazine and Lee Wards stores.
As life got busy at home, as the mother of 5 sons and 1 daughter, I found quilting by hand was all I could do in the doctor’s offices and sports fields. I have been designing quilts for local quilt shops and Internet stores ever since. In 2008, I started my long arm quilting business, learning the art of free-motion quilting.
My quilts have been published in Irish Quilting Magazine, AQS Calendar and The Wicked Book by Cherrywood Fabrics. I am a member of the Faithful Circle Quilt Guild, and Past President of the Northern Illinois Long Arm Guild.

beautiful and easy to make.
"This Pattern is so fun and easy and it comes out looking beautiful. I made it for a baby shower and it's only the second quilt I've made in 20 years (I used to quilt when my children were small and then I guess I was too busy until recently (sheltering in place helps too!) Thank you Donna for a great pattern."
"I Love this simple pattern! I'm a novice at quilts. My day job is machine embroidery. My sewing machine rarely gets used, but since I'm going to be a first time grandma in July, I dusted off my machine. I made this in two days, the quilting was done with my embroidery machine. I can't wait to make more!"
"Love this precious pattern. Easy instructions...will buy from this vendor again."
I just received the quilts. I am yet again unbelievably impressed! Your work is a-MAZ-ing!!! You were able to understand what I wanted, even though I was unable to describe it eloquently. It's like you were able to read my mind!
Thank you again for such beautiful work! They are PERFECT!

"Can't wait to make this adorable quilt for a baby boy to be born in March. I'm going to personalize the bear with his dads old army BDUs. Saw the pattern on Pinterest and really loved it. Thank you"
