I've made quilts for about 35 years and am constantly delighted by the endless ways fabrics can be combined into a beautiful and useful quilt - art that can keep you warm.
I enjoy the serendipity in quilt making. I start out with an idea, assemble a pile of fabrics, start cutting and sewing and watch to see if good things happen. They usually do.
I also make smaller art quilts, reversible silk jackets, and loads of handbags. About 12 years ago I discovered "free cut piecing", a technique that lets me "draw" with my rotary cutter. It's my artistic voice!
I also knit, hook rugs, and make lots of handbags.
