I love all things old and cherished; a deep faith, family relationships, good friends, old papers, vintage textiles. I get my energy by taking pieces and scraps from yesterday and making them into new works of art. Each compilation quilt honors those who came before us and celebrates all that we are able to do and be today.
I am truly blessed to be able to work with other quilters and historians in my appraisal practice. I am allowed to play with the vintage quilts and investigate the family stories. I am constantly amazed by the wondrous things my fellow quilters are making today. I am honored to see people's eyes light up at my lectures and in my workshops. And yes, I also get to quilt!
I am truly blessed.
