Ebony created LoveBug Studios as an outlet for her creative
energy and to feed her soul. There are many facets to her
business, but she tries to focus around three major areas:
Cut. Quilt. Love. It's a tagline that really encompassed all
that she wants to do and be.
 
Ebony considers herself a traditional quilter who uses

modern tools and color palettes to interpret her artistic
voice, and of course, if it can’t be die cut, it isn’t getting made!
