Christmas in July oh, it's August
I'm sitting here is this beautiful Seattle summer thinking about Christmas. Funny how that works. Yesterday I made a small quilt using already cut scraps from my collection. It always amazes me that the scrap box doesn't go down, even though I did NOT cut any new strips!
Make one of your own, send me a picture and be a guest artist!
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
I am proud to be participating in the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, a program to raise awareness and fund research for Alzheimer's disease. It has two parts: a traveling art quilt exhibit interpreting Alzheimer's in fiber art that will tour the US for three years, and an on-going sale of small art quilts. All proceeds will go to Alzheimer's research.http://www.alzquilts.org/
