Beads are a Blast!
Love that shiny stuff as much as I do? Let's bead. I love the repetition of the stitching. I do not care for hand quilting, it goes too slow. Don't get me wrong I love hand quilted quilts, just don't care to do the stitching. But I love to bead. With a few simple tools, and some beads of course, I can bead for hours.
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.
