I began quilting over 20 years ago. I have made over a hundred quilts during those years, from traditional to art quilts. One of the quilting genres I enjoy working with are wholecloth quilts. These are quilts that are either one color (usually white) or dye-painted. Two of my wholecloth quilts, Wholecloth1 and Wholecloth2, were recently shown at the La Connor Quilt Festival at the La Connor Quilt & Textile Museum in La Connor, WA, an internationally judged and juried quilt show, October 5 - 7, 2012. Wholecloth 3 won 3rd place in small art quilts at the Road to California show in 2013. Believe it or not, Fierce! is a whole cloth quilt. It was dye painted and thread painted. With the exception of the borders, no piecing was done.
I am currently collaborating with watercolor artist Suze Woolf on a series of quilts based on her beautiful watercolors created during her time as artist in residence at Zion National Park. Using photo transfer onto fabric, I am creating quilts out of
her art. Photos of the quilts will be posted here soon. Well, first I have to
I provide long arm quilting services and custom quilt design and completed the work necessary for certification to teach the Art of McTavishing.
I also enjoy donating my time providing longarm quilting services for quilts made for Ronald McDonald House in Seattle, WA. The children can choose a quilt and keep it, providing them warmth and the knowledge that, even if they are ill and far away from home, there are people who care for them.
A Technique a Day During the month of October in 2009, I took on a challenge to try my hand at a new quilting technique for every day of the month. Dubbed 'Quiltober,' I learned alot, found new techniques I enjoy, those which I can live without and blogged about the experience. Check out my experience here to see what happened.
