Some of my earliest childhood memories are from helping my mother sew clothing. I made my first quilt in 1971 for my niece and she still owns it. I have a love for and appreciation for both traditional and art quilts. During 2009, I discovered that I could make art quilts. Now, I am working on different techniques and styles. I am also using my Brother International sewing machine to do short arm quilting both on the machine and when I mount my machine onto a frame. I have spent some very wonderful hours doing short arm quilting. I love the colors, texture and feel of fabric and the challenge of making all those pieces into a wonderful whole.
