My name is Rian. It's pronounced Ryan. I live in a Del Webb active adult community near San Juan Capistrano in south Orange County, California. I share life with my husband Jim, aka JJ, the sweetest, most consistantly good-natured person I ever met. We have been happily married for 33 years. 

My passion is golf. My other hobbies are photography, bridge, and of course making art quilts.

JJ's passion is travel, so we travel frequently. We've been to 70 countries. Below is Monte Carlo, Monaco.

I started this blog in 2004 to chronicle my quilts and share my techniques, but I only have one technique, so there is a whole lot more here than that, just as there is a whole lot more in my life. Life is a banquet of wonderful things! 

Golf. My favorite thing to do.
