About Me

Blog Self PortraitVer1

I am Denise McKay and creating things has always been a passion.  As I child I was never far from the crayons or chalk and in High School I took every art class I could; drawing, painting, ceramics, print-making, macrame, and crocheting, I loved them all.  In those early days I sold a few items in consignment craft shops and gifted family members with a variety of my handmade objects.  When my children were young I made them stuffed animals, doll clothes, sock monkeys (my favorites) and together we worked on various projects as well.

In 2011, when my first grandchild was born, I wanted to make him something but also wanted to learn a new craft.  I discovered quilting and I can’t get enough of it!  I hope you enjoy the projects I post and patterns I create as I fine tune my quilting skills.

      I am following your “Accidental Quilt Block” tutorial to turn saved scrap fabric into a quilt for my daughter’s dorm room. Thank you for the excellent, easy to follow photos and text directions! You turned a daunting task into something totally doable,
