I love to appliqué! My shapes are whimsical and playful and I like to use unexpected fabrics whenever possible. I also like to keep it light, as in fun, goofy and a bit odd.
I hope these quilts make you smile and inspire you to get out there and give hand appliqué a whirl. Think about it and know that with just a little bit of practice you can fill many hours creating your own bright and colorful masterpieces.

This small art piece/wall hanging is mounted on a mat board just waiting for a frame. It is hand appliqued and hand-quilted. I am having fun playing with pine-cone designs right now and will be teaching this class at the Stitchin Post in Sisters, Oregon.
Anyone who would choose to sew this many tiny little wool circles to the border of a quilt has got to be a little bit crazy! That would be me!

|The Raffle Quilt
The 2012 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show will be here before we know it! It is an honor and a privilege to have been asked to design and make the raffle quilt for this year’s event. The theme is “A Patterned Village”, and since I have been immersed in fun and funky houses for quite some time, it was a perfect fit.
Tickets are available through the Stitchin Post in Sisters, Oregon. They are $1 each or six for $5 and the proceeds go to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and Kiwanis of Sisters. Both organizations benefit the community and schools of Sisters.
Don’t miss out on your chance to win this bright and colorful quilt and help support our community!
