A Bio piece featuring  
some of my work is
published  in the May/June
2010 issue of McCall's
Quilting Magazine.

"Balenkay" is included in
this article and features
curved dimensional geese
using my manipulated bias
method, which produces
the look of curved piecing
without the work!
I was asked to design  a
small wool piece using 4"
to 6" blocks, this cheery
table runner is the result.

It is featured in Quiltmaker
Magazine's Small Quilts
under the name "Woolen
Waltz
"
  • I was honored when asked to design an original 12" block for Quiltmaker Magazine's 100
    Block Issue! Of course, I said yes. I fell in love with Jinny Beyer's border fabrics,
    Hermitage & Porcelana lines with RJR Fabrics.  With these fabrics in mind, I designed the
    "Tapestry" block. The colors & textures are so luscious bringing images of rich cultural
    tapestries.  

  • Jinny's border fabrics are fussy cut to display beautiful motifs in the block adding to the
    richness of the "tapestry". The center square is fussy cut quarter square triangles in
    kaleidoscope fashion.  I designed Tapestry to be set with a 1 1/2" sashing strip which has
    a small vertical strip pieced in the center which continues the vertical and horizontal strips
    in the block.  

  • Sashing strips are set with the blocks, giving the impression that the strips are woven.
    Blocks can be made using the same color theme or two color themes can be chosen to
    increase  the interest across the quilt. A nine block setting is smashing! My block was
    used in one of the 3 quilts shown on the Gallery Page made by one of Quiltmaker's staff!

  • My Blossom Block, left, is on the cover of the 100 Quilts Volume shown at right! This block
    features prairie point petals giving the block interesting dimensionality. A fun block to use
    in a myriad of colors.
