I am a married mother of 3 with a law degree that I have never used because I’d rather spend my time buying quilting fabric. And playing with my kids, of course. I decided a few months ago that I wanted to be a surface pattern designer. So I started taking an online Adobe Illustrator class in November and have been creating patterns almost every single day since. I am extremely passionate about this newfound world and my dream is to have my designs on quilting fabric. I tend to go after things full steam ahead and I would embrace every challenge this competition would throw at me. On Project Runway they almost always have a new, relatively inexperienced designer who brings a fresh and energetic feel to the show. I can be that person in this competition! (Of course on the show the newbie is usually someone much younger than I am, but you can’t have everything.) I am very familiar with the quilting world and I think my designs bring a happy and playful voice that hasn’t been heard yet.
