From the Artist:
My quilting passion started in 2003 after moving to Virginia from California. Monterey had a wonderful quilt guild with excellent teachers and that is where my sewing began.
For the last two years, I have worked on designing my own pieced letter alphabet in order to sew message quilts.
The Four Patch Spinner technique is another favorite of mine. Four identical layers of patterned fabric are cut into squares and each piece of the four piece set is turned to create a uniquely designed block. There are four wall hangings where I used this technique. Can you spot them?
Using many techniques, to date I have finished 20 queen sized quilts for the “Quilts of Comfort,” quilts given to veterans, I finished 8 quilts last year. Most of them are message quilts of gratitude.
My appreciation and admiration for all quilters is boundless.
