current projects

I'm directing my quilting energies primarily on two projects these days (3 if you count a project underway at one of the local nursing homes with a group on non-quilters - when I get back from my trip I will share the story behind this project - it's quite wonderful!)

some might say I'm in a star rut - my last completed quilt was the star wallhanging I donated to FEDOPO for our annual fundraiser. anyhow I just loved the way it turned out I thought I'd use the same basic design for a baby quilt I have to do. the stars are bigger than the one in the wallhanging so the overall measurements are also larger - I expect when finished it will be 48x57 inches. the other project underway is also a baby quilt - but right now I'm at the stage of piling up possible fabrics - unlike my last few quilts which have all been made from those glorious batik fabrics, this quilt will primarily be constructed using some of the fabrics in my african fabric stash! needless-to-say I'm very excited about this project!

a place to see my quilts

I enjoy working with individuals who wish to celebrate, honor, or commemorate a special occassion with a custom crafted quilt or wall hanging. I specialize in contemporary interpretations of traditional quilts. I've created a new 'mouse hole' where I can post pictures and descriptions of my past current and future projects. I welcome feedback from my fellow quilters and also folks who might be interested in talking about a future project.
