She is an original designer having published over twenty-five patterns which are available through Checker Distributors and is currently working on her first book for Landauer Publishing called ‘”Sweet ‘n Sassy”.
Being a previous quilt shop owner of the oldest quilt shop in New England and teacher, she is very well versed in the art of quilt making. She teaches classes for all levels of quilters in traditional piecing as well as wearable art. PJ is also working on her first line of fabric for Henry Glass, named “Giselle”.
Her latest accomplishment is a template set called “Sweet n’ Sassy” which is being produced and marketed by Creative Grid Rulers. Another template is in the prototype stage that will allow individuals to make an eight-pointed star without any “y” seams.
