Completed a wallhanging today commissioned by a friend. She is off to meet her new grandson soon and rather than a quilt, which I made for her other grandkids, decided on a wallhanging. The nursery has a sailboat theme, so the boats were the inspiration. A lighthouse for Maine seemed appropriate; the whale and starfish were my friend's idea. Fun touches included tiny buttons edging the starfish arms and a few sequins to make the whale spout sparkle.
I discovered a passion for quilting in 1996, and have had at least one quilt in process since then. In addition to numerous quilts for family and friends, I began entering quilts in shows in 2000, and was thrilled when my first entry won a blue ribbon!
Having won honors both in Maine and nationally, my focus now is primarily on art quilts.
I occasionally take commissions, ranging from one-of-a-kind baby quilts to collaborative art quilts, and teach a variety of classes.
