I first experienced quilting in the late 1970s and finally gave it up as I didn't care for the fabric choices available at that time. I went on to crewel, knitting, crocheting, and other types of sewing. In 2008, a coworker talked me into giving it another try - I had been admiring her quilts when she brought them to the office. I took a beginning quilting class and was off and running with this new passion in my life.
Currently, my focus is in appliqued dog portraits, based on photographs. I find it very challenging and interesting to find fabric to reflect the color and texture of an animal. I am widening my focus by adding cat portraits currently.
