Pretty Pleats is Here!

I love quilts. And I love pleats. To the best of my knowledge, no one combines pleats and quilts. Pleats give a wonderful texture and pizzazz to anything they are added too. Imagine a pleated handbag or a pleated dress. But a quilt?

Why is no one doing this? Pleats, if used right, add elegance and sophistication. They add bounce and fun. They add new and novel.

Let's use pleats in quilts. There are so many possibilities!

My passion is quilt making, but I work in other fields as well like teaching children to sew (often my own) and mathematics.

Join me on this journey to bring an old design element to quilts!
