These art quilts, ranging from wall hanging to bed size, evoke relaxation, peace and enjoyment.

Artist Statement:
Over the years I have shared my quilting skills with thousands of students and friends. Quilting brings me and others great pleasure as I give many of them away to family, friends and charity. Quilting is comforting, brings focus, and encourages social interaction.

Whether I teach a student a quilting technique, display an art quilt in a show or make a special bed quilt for a grandchild, each quilt is unique in its outcome and purpose. Creating a quilt, from designing the pattern, choosing the fabric, to placing the final decorative stitches, brings me a great sense of accomplishment and pleasure.

I see myself as a “quilting coach”.
Quilting and teaching this craft/art form has been my passion since 1980.
Teaching others a vast array of techniques and skills helps to carry on a valuable American craft that can also be viewed as an art form.

Although I have trained in the traditional style of quilting, I have always enjoyed diverting from the traditional path to creating my own art quilts which are for purchase. My specialty is “Zen Quilting” inspired by Zentangle. I coined the phrase after authoring the “Zen Quilting Workbook” which inspires quilters to design their own unique final top stitching on their pieced or whole cloth quilts.

My passion is “longarm” quilting. I take customer quilt tops and backs, sandwich them with batting and attach the three layers with creative and beautifully intricate stitching. This is achieved on a twelve foot long 500 pound Gammill longarm quilting machine that I named “Gloria”. For each quilt I plan a unique design that is carefully hand guided by maneuvering “Gloria” along the quilt. Colorful threads are laid down in whirls, swirls and geometric patterns, each quilt taking on its own personality.

I also design pantograph quilting patterns for longarm quilting machines for “Willow Leaf Studio”. Other longarm quilters purchase these paper or digital patterns for use on customer quilts.
