My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant, and joyful!

I think about UFO's and how I don't like having them clutter my brain. I have used unconventional ways to deal with them for years. Pieces I don't want to finish do not remain in my studio for long. I might cut them up and put them on the back of something else. Give them to Community Service at my guild and sometime I even through them in the trash!
I found a new way to deal with them; I cut them up, saving the parts I like and use my Quilt-as-you-go method to sew the pieces back together again.
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.
