My interest for quilts was born out of my love for early and colonial American history. Being from Southeast Asia, I had not had much exposure to quilts due to the fact that quilts are mainly a Western "thing". Through reading, I became aware of and loved the look of the Baltimore quilts, but still I didn't catch the quilting bug mainly because I didn't know how to sew.



I decided to give quilting a try years later after being repeatedly encouraged by a friend (Thanks, Barbara!), just so that I can say that I have somewhat "shared" an experience in quilting with the women I read about in history. Little did I know how much I would enjoy making my first quilt, and before I knew it, I was making my second, third, fourth, and fifth quilts!!

When I am not quilting, you would most probably find me reading a biography or something historical in nature, browsing through catalogs, smocking or doing heirloom needlework, cleaning my house, or attempting to garden.

This page will be updated periodically so that I can tell you more about myself. Do come back again!

In the meantime,

Please feel free to write me an e-mail
