I am an avid quilter and designer. I have three mostly grown children and I live with my adorable husband along with our dog and cat. I started Backporch Design in 2000. Back then it was Backporch Dyeworks because I hand dyed a LOT of fabric. My specialty was dyeing the full spectrum of the color wheel. The business progressed to a retail shop, which was then sold to my sister-in-law. Now I am a "designer" who designs patterns, books, templates and other items for quiltaholics.
