About Me


I'm Janice and I've been happily married to a very talented home builder for 26 years, two boys and a girl with only one daughter left at home.   I also like photography so I'm thankful that she let's me practice on her once in a while. What a sweetie.  We live out in the country in Idaho which I absolutely LOVE.

I work full time for a university in the Financial Aid office.  I'm not a very prolific producer of quilts YET since I can only do this in the evenings and on weekends.  I've only finished 3 of them all by myself from beginning to end.  Although I've been piecing for a while, I just learned how to do the quilting part of it in April 2016.

And here are my favorite two finishes so far . . .

I started this blog because I realized how much I enjoyed reading other's adventures in this quilt creating process and thought it would be fun to document my own journey.  It will be fun to look back a year from now and see how far I've come.

You can read more about how my adventure began in my very first post.



  1. Your daughter is a most beautiful girl, she obviously takes after her Mom.

  2. Hi Janice. My name is Susan. I live just north of Idaho Falls. I don't know how close that is to you. I have a lot of old quilting mags that I am practically giving away at my next garage sale.I have been quilting for 50+ years. If you are going to be in the area in the next two weeks, let me know and you can see if you want any. I have a bunch of other crafty things, too. Do you do counted cross stitch? email me at sueovard@ida.net if you are interested, or just want to talk.

  3. What a great picture, Janice. It's nice to put a face to the name. I'm glad you've started documenting your maker's journey!
