I began quilting more than 20 years ago, when expecting my first child. it was simple, I simply hand stitched through the 3 layers, one a panel design. I have designed several quilts over the past 18 years, but only in 2009 did I begin to experiment with dying and creating my own fabric designs. I also have yet to enter a challenge. don't know what I am afraid of, my clients have been delighted with my creations, so the fear? don't know. This year is the year for me.
