The Historical Museum
A 1910 crazy quilt on a 1925 fainting couch.
Small history museums have interesting stuff. Often of local interest. The high ceilings and dark wood trim, of this 1910 Carnegie, library create a period atmosphere for this collection of historic artifacts and information. As a quilter there were a number of things of interest.
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.
