I have been quilting for about 6 years now and have been thoroughly hooked. I
plan my vacations around fabric stores or quilt shows! My husband doesn't mind as
long as there is a fishing spot nearby - his passion. As I finish my projects, I try to add pictures and a bit about the project.
As you will see from the next page, every quilt has a story, from the time it
was conceived, to picking the pattern, color and fabric, to the quilting design,
to the final disposition of the quilt. My favorite, and most labor intensive project was the
Double Irish Chain Wedding
quilt I completed in September 2001 for a very special couple. The
project with the tightest deadline was making three quillows
in one week. Yikes!
This quilt was made for a wonderful coworker who recently was married. I had very little warning of the wedding, so I was in a quilting frenzy for several weeks. It was also the largest quilt I have made to date! They loved the quilt - and thought the colors were perfect as well.

This is the label I printed onto fabric using my computer. It reads "This
quilt is presented to Bill and Natalie, as they start a new life. Starting
as best of friends, now they are husband and wife."
Thanks for looking! Stay tuned! I have tons of UFOs in the process of being finished.
My daughter and sister were coming with my husband and I to Florida to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday. Since we were traveling by Autotrain, I made my sister and daughter a quillow for the train ride. I made my mom her quillow as a birthday present. I made all three in one week!
