About Mary

This site is mainly about my quilting but you’ll find posts about my family, the dog, and my travels.

I’m a self taught quilter and my focus is donation quilting along with blogging, designing, knitting, and organizing the HeartStrings Quilt Project.

Keith and I have moved a lot in our 28 years of marriage and for now we’re settled in Tampa. 


My sons, Chris and Adam, both live in the Atlanta area.


We have 3 grandchildren – Bree, Rae, and Caleb


We lost Chesty, our 14 year old Bichon to kidney disease in 2015 and added Finn to our family in 2017.

    Hi Mary, Sorry I lost track of you for awhile. Believe it or not the Maribees are still meeting. I think Edie Peterson and I might be the only original members left. If you are ever in the Atlanta area, I would love to see you and reconnect.

    I am echoing the earlier posts. I just found your site and would like to subscribe but I can’t find a subscribe link. I did find an unsubscribe button by using the search function. lol
    Would you please add me?

    My husband is hinting he might get me an instant pot for Christmas. Do you like yours?
    What size did you get. It is just the two of us now and I saw there is a 3 qt model, but I
    am not sure if it would be too small. Someone said they have 3 inserts, do you have
    more than one? Do you need more than one? Did you get the extra glass lid for when you
    slow cook in the appliance? Thank you for your help.
