I find pulling a needle with thread through fabric soothes my soul. I try to find at least a few minutes to do this every day. My husband Jim and I love nature walks and shopping in antique stores. Who knows what vintage fabric will find its way into a quilt?
My station in life is teaching. After a career in public education, I began to explore my creative side. Now I teach classes and give lectures related to quiltmaking. I’ve made nearly ninety quilts in the past fifteen years. Some of these are elaborate bed-sized quilts, others are small wall hangings, many are somewhere in between.
I began with traditional piecing and appliqué techniques using quilters’ cotton fabrics. Sunprints and photos on fabric came next. Now I include wool, linen, vintage fabrics, and decorator fabrics. I embellish with embroidery, buttons, pins, anything I can find a way to attach to cloth.
