made by my grandmother Erma. I'm still inspired by her bright beautiful sense of color, and remember loving her hand quilted feathers as a child. In 1986 I started my quilting adventure.
so, I didn't feel a need to make more. Thanks to my good friend Jeanne for taking me to my first guild meeting.
This was my first quilted project (after my guild nametag). It was a pattern in Quiltmaker magazine and wasn't as challenging as it looks. I was hooked.
I never thought I could create original patterns. I hadn't felt like an artist since grade school. Then, Mary Lou Weidman introduced me to a world of possibilities and my creativity has been soaring since.
when Ami Simms asked me to create a pattern using her cup fabric. I got to see my first original pattern hanging in a quilt shop!
