Welcome to Kerrville Texas
A room full of happy quilters!
Great show and tell
In the summer of 1984 ten women met to discuss a common interest -
their love of quilting. From this first meeting evolved the Hill Country Quilt Guild. The
guild’s first project was a Sesquicentennial quilt presented to the City of Kerrville. It now hangs on the
second floor of the Butt-Holdsworth Library. They support and participate in those activities which encourage
appreciation of fine quilts and quilt making. This includes displaying
quilts in windows of businesses, the downtown visitors’ center, and the
Kerr Arts & Cultural Center. Members made quilts for
organizations in need.
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.
