Stitching Through the Layers - the book tells all!
I love straight
line quilting, it works so well on so many quilts, and it’s so easy! The
possible combinations of straight lines are endless. Don’t stress with the
process, remember to breath! I like the look of lines that aren’t perfect. I do
try to keep them from looking too messy. Depending on how densely you quilt it
can be time quite consuming (take breaks! You don’t have to finish quilting all
at one time!). The end results are wonderful. Have fun playing with straight lines!
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.
