“I have made a few quilts over past 4 years. I gave 4 of them to friends. I am about to start another soon. My main style is appliqué with pieced blocks. Most have some embroidery on them and some have fabric painting. I did a history quilt that was entered in our state fair and got a ribbon. It had two sides—one was the Statue of Liberty and the other had blocks showing history events in America.
They all turned out good; sometimes, you don’t know how a quilt will look when finished. I put it on a quilt frame and roll it as I go. I work from an idea in my head and go from there. My friends that I surprised and gave a quilt to were speechless.
This one had a poem called “The Rainbow Bridge.” It was for a friend whose special wallaby died. She had raised him from a pinky joey (one with no fur). There were a variety of methods used on this one. You will find that I do a lot of kangaroo-theme quilts.”
