I have been quilting ever since I started my career as a stay-at-home mom. My first project was piecing squares from a home decorating swatch book into a warm,heavy, sheet backed quilt.
I love antique quilts, whether appliquéd or pieced. Simple to complex piecing, they all have charm. I also like pieced art quilts in the style of Ruth McDowell.
My favorite fabrics are polka dots.
I enjoy the design process the best, although I enjoy every step of making a quilt — and feel a little lost when a big project is completed.
I participated in this project because it involved a little research and was open to any style or technique I wanted to use. (The 11 inch square size was the only requirement.) I also wanted to stay involved with the Designing Quilters after having moved away.
I have been a member of DQ since 1992, and am a founding member of Divas.
