Welcome to Fredricksburg Texas
Guild Show and Share
Home of the Vereins Quilt Guild of
Fredericksburg. In 1996, the city of Fredericksburg, Texas held a
week long celebration commemorating its 150th birthday. As a part of
that celebration, a quilt show was held. The show was put together by
volunteers who had a love for quilts and quilting. During the course of
planning and executing that show, it was evident that a number of women
in Fredericksburg were interested in having a guild where quilters
could meet on a regular basis.
Fredericksburg was founded in 1846 and named after Prince Frederick of Prussia. The Fredericksburg Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in Texas.
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.
