Finished the commission piece and met up with the new owner for lunch to hand over the quilt. She was happy with the finished product which is what matters most when you are making a quilt for someone else. It is an interesting collaboration--taking their ideas and impressions and interpreting them through your own filter. Her vision was of a quilt that implied a person walking their dog on the beach but not a wall hanging or pictorial quilt, more something you could wrap up in. I love this photo of the beach-y quilt with snow in the background.
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.
