My Bio

I am a 'junior' senior citizen.  I have been quilting for a number of years.  I'm not a traditionalist but I haven't quite grabbed the art branch that is being offered.  I prefer to machine quilt  and I am comfortable with free motion work.  I've dipped a toe in the dye bath.  I've taken a course or two in the fibre art world.  Now to firmly grasp that branch and plunge more than a toe into the whole ocean of opportunity that Quilting Arts offers.  Ready,  setty;   jump!

This is The Costume Museum of Canada's Quilt Challenge.  We were to take an old garment and make a quilt.  I used a 50's taffeta cocktail dress.  I added two auction sale fabrics  The sashing was a perfect 2008 accent.

    I'm a machine quilter on a regular home sewing machine.  I haven't tried beads yet. 

    Glad you like them.

  • A Kewl First

    The quilt was a first for me as my son was marrying an ARTIST.  I felt a little intimidated but I luved making  this quilt.  I have  the leftovers cut into smaller sized pieces and want to make my own wall quilt.  This was so kewl!

  • New Beginnings

    Time to make time for a few of my favorite things.  I've taken the leap into a written commitment.  I've started a blog and it is all about creative things in my life.  Huge technalogical leap but hopefully a very creative one.

    Thanks to this community for getting me started!
