About me

Introduction I started making quilts in the early 1980's, and consider myself a traditionalist. I am mainly a hand quilter, and will keep doing it until my hands give out. My very first influence was Marsha Mcclosky, who's beautiful chintz and blended quilts I love to this day. Early on I was "liberated" by Gwen Marsden. My favorite quilts are scrappy. The past few years I've been gravitating more and more to old-timey looking quilts and fabrics, including the wonderful reproductions now available. I also love folk art, and Americana. Meanwhile, I'm in awe of and constantly inspired by some of the beautiful work I am exposed to. I thank all the wonderful artists out there for sharing your inspiration, encouragement, and beauty!
