Is your life like a patchwork quilt?

Hi, I'm Tara!


My life is definitely like a patchwork quilt! Patches for wife, mom, nana, daughter, sister, dog-mom, teacher, office manager, industrial radiographer, shrimp boat owner, Texas Aggie, woman of faith, quilter, scrapbooker, baker, gardener, massage enthusiast, chicken lover, ice cream fan, and the list goes on and on. All of my "patches" work together to create the fabric of my life - just like yours. 

Connections are the most important thing in everything I do - supporting and loving others through cooking, quilting, teaching, and interacting with others. These are the things I hope to share with you here - quilt patterns and tips, recipes, fun ideas for your kiddos, bits of wisdom about any and all things that strike me.


My business - Polka Dot Peep is a place to find quilt patterns, quilted goodies, custom quilts, quilt repairs, and vintage fabrics. It is for makers and non-makers, just like this site.


Quilts, like life, are made with love, creativity, and lots of effort - thank you for joining me in making this one the best!
