Evolution of a Quilter......

It's Up...

You can see my quilt exhibit:

The Evolution of a Quilter

I work in my home studio, built by my husband Brad, in Harlan, Oregon. The studio is affectionately known as "The Thread Shed." It brings me joy and is my Happy Place. When I am out there hours go by without my even knowing it. Like all quilts, mine are not just quilts, they are stories about imagination, passion, perseverance, dedication and love. Each quilt contains a lesson for me, and with each one my skills have grown.

My quilts are greatly influenced by life on a ranch in the Harlan Valley. In recent years I have blended a love of photography, gardening and quilting together. I feel my work is taking on a more contemporary look and this excites me. I also feel it is important to display my original quilts, as my older work defines who I am today.

For me, quilts represent the beauty that I need and I want in my everyday life, the beauty that I want to share with others.

Please enjoy the quilts!

  5. Many Thanks to all of you for your kind and supportive words about my quilts.
    Preparing for this exhibit has been a time of personal growth for me. I rarely give my personal quilts a deadline for completion. Much too often they are put on the back burn while I am finishing quilts for clases I am teaching, family, friends, charity & fundraising efforts, quilt shows, etc. I have finally learned to put my name at the top of the to-do-list.
    Again, thank you for your comments.
