Quilts

When I speak about quilts and I think back over the years about my quilting, I realize that is has become much more than a hobby.  It is a passion.  It is something that brings me an amazing amount of satisfaction and fulfillment.  It is one of my favorite creative endeavors.  It lets me take the skills that I have developed over the past 30 years and use them to create something that no one has ever created before.  Very often I use a pattern that someone else developed but lately I have been using my own imagination to create original quilts.  That is what I love to do most.  I have developed the skills over the years to be able to spend time in my sewing room and pull fabrics and cut and sew them into something that I think is beautiful.

Here are some of the quilts that I have made over the years.

This quilt is hand pieced, appliqued and quilted.

I hope you have enjoyed my little quilt show.  I will add more pictures as soon as I have a moment to upload them.  When I started this quilting journey we didn’t have the digital cameras that we have now.  I have to dig through my bins of pictures and upload the pictures.

Have a nice day…

Be Kind
