Bobbin! TurtleTracks' mascot and faithful guard dog.
I'm the primary support unit for the Head Turtle! I handle site admin and organization. And yes, I'm a quilter! Fiona got me hooked in 2010 and I haven't looked back. My style is mostly modern and I love machine piecing.
Training and education: annual training at HandiQuilter Academy in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Teaching: Cathedral Window pillow class, Scrappy Mountain Star - string quilting pattern, and Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses (EPP). Available to teach these classes at your local quilt shop, guild meeting, or other select other locations for small groups.

My sister taught me to quilt in 1989. I learned hand quilting and hand piecing before rotary cutters! I’ve been English Paper Piecing since 1990 and “Dresden Dream” is the first EPP quilt I completed. Since 1995 I’ve been alternating between machine and hand piecing and am currently developing and teaching EPP classes. After what must be my hundredth quilt show and a slew of daydreams about starting my own quilting business, I purchased my long arm in early 2015 and I can’t stop stitching! When I’m not honing my quilting skills on the long arm, I’m refurbishing, maintaining, and reselling featherweights. Stay tuned for more news on my collection!

When we're not quilting for our wonderful customers, we're working with any number of community organizations and guilds on quilt related projects. Our Head Turtle, Fiona, is happy to participate regularly with the following groups:
