About MountainViews Designs

Welcome to MountainViews Designs! I am a fiber artist living in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. The spectacular nature surrounding me provides me with an abundance of ideas for my designing palette. My main medium I use is fabric where I create distinctive items that can be used to decorate your home and serve as an alternative to just hanging a picture on the wall. I like to design my pieces to fit in with many different home decor esthetics. If you don’t see what you want, please email me and I can design a piece especially for you!

All but a few of my quilts, baskets, and handbags are original designs by me and one of a kind. The only exceptions are the wonky flower quilts and the Kaleidoscope quilt. These are based on the Caveman and Kaleidoscope patterns by Ricky Tims. If you see a piece that you love and it is already sold, I would be happy to make you a similar piece; but again no two pieces are exactly alike.

I especially like to design with a nature inspired theme. Some of my favorites are the quilted flower & leaf wallhangings. These are made using the pigment/ dye of the actual flowers and leaves. An inking and thread painting technique further enhances the colors to give the quilt a rustic/ organic feel.

All quilts have a “sleeve” on the back for easy hanging. Colors in baskets may vary slightly from photos. FREE ground shipping within the United States.

If you are visiting the Asheville, NC or the Atlanta, GA area and wish to see more of my work; please visit Mountain Made in the Grove Arcade, downtown Asheville and the Arboretum in southern Asheville.

I live near Asheville, NC with my husband of 39 years. We have 2 sons, a daughter-in-law, and 2 granddaughters. I have been creating in one way or another from a very early age whether it be by drawing, painting, sewing, quilting etc. My mother taught me how to sew at the age of 9. She couldn’t keep me out of the fabric and quilt stores from then on! My background includes a Commercial Art/ Advertising degree, designed newspaper ads and print jobs, worked for several fabric store chains and owned/ operated our own fabric/ quilt store in London, Ohio.
