Welcome to my website, designed and maintained by our oldest son, William, until he moved to California in 2002, now by me and my husband, John.
I love quilting, and am pleased to be able to show off my scrap quilts. Scrap quilts are made with odds and ends of material from many sources: presents, donations, swaps with other quilters, old clothes, flea markets, garage sales, and the occasional visit to a local quilt store. I quilt with scraps for many reasons: thriftiness, making something from stuff others were going to throw out, sentimentality (my grandmother's apron!), and the artistic challenge of using what's available.
At the moment, I make traditional pattern quilts, getting inspiration from a multitude of places: mostly library books on quilting, but also exhibitions, other websites, and tv programs. The internet quilting chat rooms are also very interesting and informative.
Please, feel free to email me. I'd like to hear your comments.
