A friend just called to say that her sister went to The Quilter's Gathering show in New Hampshire this weekend and 'Mom and Aunti Jean play Gin' had a ribbon attached! Very awesome. She says I won "Best interpretation of the theme" which was Sisterhood Swirls. Can't wait to get the 'official' notification. I had two quilts in the show, this one and 'Bali Bloom', the big pink flower with beading. You can see it in the slideshow on my sidebar. Made my week!

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.
