Art & Quilting

I started making a quilt for my niece when she was born in 1978 and finished it for her 31st birthday! I then made quilts for my children from their Dad's clothes, wishing I had done it after he had passed, when they were little as it would have been comforting for them. Better late then never! I finished a quilt that my son and I had started working on when he was younger, and put it in the East Bay Heritage Quilt Guild "Voices in Cloth" quilt show in 2010 and have been quilting ever since! I have made close to 60 quilted pieces of art, large and small. I have 9 children's quilts finished, in the second box for you to see, and have many more ready to put together. 

I am eclectic, offering a wide range of art for people, both beautiful and practical,  because I know people are a whole variety of wonderful!! My goal is something for everyone. Well, there is art I won't make, hopefully you will find what you want somewhere if you don't see it here. 

The top box are quilts I've made for family, friends, community projects, and myself to show the range of projects I've done in the past; some can be commissioned to do what is meaningful to you.

The middle box are quilts that are for sale. For more information on each one and to buy one (or more) please go to my shop in the "more" category at the top of the page. With the children, and adult lap, cozy cuddly quilts, I am selling deep comfort. When I sit on my couch with my feet up, feet & legs covered in my lap quilt, I am cozy, I am cuddled, I am relaxed, I am lucky to have one! I am supporting a slower, sustainable healthy lifestyle.

The bottom box are projects and quilts that have been sold; some of them can be commissioned to be done, again, in a way that is meaningful to you.

Some artists create a style they work within. I love to bring forth a variety, play with what I have in fabric, adding when needed, ideas that come to me, what I think people would need or want, such as children's cozy quilts, adult lap quilts, wall hangings, or pot holders, aprons, table cloths, etc.

I think t-shirt quilts are important to people, to remember their experiences or loved ones. I am making warm curtains for tiny homes. I've enjoyed using multimedia and plan to do more of that.

Is there something you don't see here you would like to have? Is there something you see that you'd like to have in a particular way? Please ask!
