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.
