My Quilts

My, you are a curious one to get to this page!  I am a new quilter. Well, not that new but a few years anyway. I came to quilting through fabric design, and to fabric design through art. I like to make improv quilts mostly though I try a few other things.

My quilts are mostly original compositions and I humbly share them here. I tend to create quilts that are a little wacky and workmanship is not my priority though I admire it greatly in others!  I like asymmetry and unusual compositions, and happy accidents.

I make many for other people (as you do) with their palette or taste in mind. Often they have asked to include my own fabrics. But I love piecing with solids and I also love collecting great fabric prints other than my own. I’m not a “show” quilter. Really just for fun. But enjoy!
