About Me

Hi! I’m Ann – welcome to my blog!

Version 2I have been quilting for nearly 20 years – doing piecing, applique, and FMQ on my domestic Bernina machine. I also enjoy dyeing fabric to use in my quilts. I bought an Avante Longarm in late 2016 and have been loving working on it and learning all sorts of new things.  In mid 2017 I felt confident enough with my longarm to start offering longarm services to clients.

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my husband and 5 furry kids. My blog and business are named after my dog, Leo, and his awesome brown spotted paws. I also have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Maggie who has her own Instagram and Facebook pages.

I enjoy my blog for a few key reasons.  Firstly, it motivates me to spend more time quilting and being creative, and secondly it allows me to meet, learn from, and be inspired by the great people in the quilting community.

IMG_0501I tried some painting – if I can be brave enough to try that, I can try new things with my quilting!  This is a fairly poor representation of Maggie.

Please follow my blog and let me know what you are working on!
