This quilt was brought to me by my client Maxine and was pieced by her friend in Texas.  Two layers of high-loft batting was used to create the extra puffiness.  It was quilted using the Stars & Loops Panto edge to edge.

Recent Happenings

Recent Happenings

 

I have been away from my quilt studio recently along with anything remotely related to today’s communications.  I only feel it is fair that along with my long arm quilting that I share with you some of the beauty of the great state of Alaska.  While out in the wilderness, I enjoyed picking wild blueberries, sitting back to enjoying the scenery and harvesting my very first Caribou.  My hobbies are of a unique blend such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, sewing, quilting, crafting, motorcycle riding and football.  I am the third daughter and my father’s tomboy, so I grew up spending much of my time with my dad, uncles and the guys.  My mother took every opportunity to make sure that I received enough girl time to understand and learn how to be feminine when necessary.  So to sum it up…I enjoy a bit of both worlds.  Here are some photos of my recent happenings:

2002 – 2003 Quilts

I tried various techniques during these two years mostly using the Stack n Whack (SnW) pattern.  I wanted to showcase more of the base fabric in the SnW so I altered the layout to include the large wedge on the corners.  I practiced aligning my points and stitch in ditch (SID), agonizing over every detail.  One day while I was showing off one of my quilts and critiquing every aspect a wise individual told me this.  If it was to be without variances it would have come off an assembly line.
