Quilt Show

China Rose
I expresses my love of nature and color with my quilts. Inspirations frequently come from gardens. Formal Chinese gardens offer peace and tranquillity through the use of artistic screens and harmonious botanical forms.

The flowers are hand dyed fabric, hand appliqu├ęd to commercial cotton fabrics from my collection. The piecing was done by machine. The machine quilting adds the final texture.

Star Bright
The imagery I use is frequently inspired by nature. For months at a time I travel never missing a sunrise or sunset. This piece captures the brilliance of clear dawn stars against a blue velvet sky.

100% cotton materials, machine pieced & quilted.
