With 33 years of practice, I ought to be pretty good at this quilt making thing! I love antique quilts and studio art quilts, quilts from Gee’s Bend, rallis from Pakistan, Central Asian korak and Korean bojagi.
As soon as I learned to quilt, I started teaching others. For many years I owned a quilt shop. As a founding member of the Quilters’ Guild of North Dakota, I’ve held most offices in that organization, and headed the North Dakota Quilt Project. Currently, I handle the Guild’s web page and library.
After years of serving as the area’s informal quilt history “expert,” I obtained a Master of Arts in textiles, with a concentration in quilt studies, from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln , home of the International Quilt Study Center. That’s when I discovered how much I still have to learn about the story of quilting.
Much as I enjoy making quilts, my favorite activities are learning and teaching about them.
