Greetings, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Mary J. Puckett.
I made my own clothing for years, but switched to quilts when I figured out that fitting a quilt to a bed was more fun than fitting clothes to my body.
EVEN SO, a memorable early quilt was taken to the guest bed as soon as it was finished—and was found to fit the TOP of the bed exactly, with no allowance for drop on the sides!
I’ve done better since then…
Most of my quilts are my own design, and most of them are modern. You can see one of my current works-in-progress here.
I enter contests and shows occasionally. Sometimes I win something or sell something, which is pleasant, but really I quilt because it’s FUN. You can see one of my winning designs here.
In one of my quilt groups, each person is making a quilt a month for Ronald McDonald House this year. Here’s a stack from one of our get-togethers:
I write for magazines a little, but I work more than full time and have a life, too, so that is limited. You can read about my most recent magazine article here.
And of course I teach quilting. My newest class is an improvised modern table runner. Here’s a picture of one of the designs for that class:
