About Acela Troffer: Owner, Rhapsody red quilts
I feel a strong connection to preserving memories; small, strong and everywhere in between. I am firmly committed to providing individualized service and welcome unusual requests. I understand the shirts are special to you and I treat them as special as well.
I use my technical background and creative nature to develop each individual quilt layout ultimately creating a quilt that is uniquely yours.
I am an engineer by schooling and career. I have been quilting since 2001. I am self taught and gain most of my knowledge from on-line instruction.
I personally love modern and contemporary designs. I am always working on several projects with a few more in my head.
I live in Windermere, Florida with my husband, Tom. We have three children, one in college, and all three teetering on self-sustainment. Tom is always there to encourage me and be a great second opinion as well as enjoying talking with the gals at the quilt shops.
Quilts should be loved, used and used up!
I would prefer to see a quilt needing mending than a quilt that is coveted as an heirloom. I always cuddle up on the couch with a quilt. T-shirt quilts preserve memories, warm hearts and provide a sense of comfort.
In my spare time
I enjoy scrapbooking, reading in my garden and the outdoors. My husband and I camp often in our home state of Florida. Camping affords us the time to decompress. We also enjoy photography, biking and spending time with our kids.
