Thanks for Stopping By

Frances_O_DowellHello, and welcome! I’m so happy you’re here.

Now, there’s a good chance you stopped by because you listen to my podcast, The Off-Kilter Quilt. If so, you already know a lot about me—that I’m a quilter and a writer, that I’m married to a man I like to call The Man and have two teenage sons, Jack and Will. Oh, and let’s not forget Travis, my fearless and beloved cockapoo. He’s a part of the family, too.

If you came here by accident, I’m glad you found me. Let me tell you why I’m here. First, I wanted to get all my quiltiness together in one space—the podcast and podcast show notes and quilt pix and projects and links. Secondly, I wanted to have an opportunity to write about quilts and quiltmaking, perhaps touching on topics I don’t talk about on the podcast. Finally, I’m in the process of making a home for my forthcoming quilt novel, Birds in the Air, and I thought I’d build it here. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

If you want to get in touch, just send me an email at I’d love to hear from you!

More soon,


Travis the dog.
