About Sue

Sue has been sewing since she was 4 and quilting since age 12. This was before rotary cutters and self healing mats!  She loves all the steps in quilting including designing, making and teaching modern quilt designs. Sue’s passion is inspiring others on their creative journey! In the past 25 years, she has taught quilting in over 30 states and 6 countries at both quilt guilds and major quilt shows. 

Sue’s Background in the Modern Quilt Guild

Sue attended the first Quiltcon in Austin Texas, 2013. After that, she could not get enough of all the creativity resulting by not following the guidelines used in traditional quilting.  She will always love the heritage in traditional quilts and enjoys the challenge of adding a modern twist to them.

In 2015, Sue was juried into the second Quiltcon Show with her quilt, Modern Migration. She wrote the book shortly after the show and it is available for purchase through Amazon.
