In 1997 Doris began creating original fused fabric landscapes and mini quilts, which she matted and framed; hundreds of these originals at fine art and craft shows in the Midwest.  After catching the attention of quilters she was encouraged to share her expertise by giving workshops and lectures.

Always wanting to share her love of quilting and landscape Doris offers a variety of demos, workshops and lectures to quilters at quilt expos and to quilt guilds. Her busy life includes sharing a farming business with husband, Don, 4 grown sons, 8 grandchildren.
