This site serves as my portfolio of quilts I’ve completed since I started quilting in 2006. I began by making wall quilts, art quilts, for the showroom of Acoustic Corner, a music store in Black Mountain, NC. I’ve made art quilts for family and friends, music venues and museums, non-profit fundraisers and personal memorials. I’ve won a few awards at the local Asheville Quilt Show and gotten into a few national shows. I mostly make quilts on commission, and love technical challenges. I am particularly drawn to natural landscapes, architectural images, and dog portraits. If you like what you see here, and are interested in having me make a quilt for you, let’s talk.
My quilting techniques
I enjoy handwork, so most of my quilts are made using as little machine sewing as possible. Typically I machine-piece the background, then hand-applique features and add detail with embroidery. Most quilts are hand-quilted, though I’ve acquired a quilt frame and a mid-arm machine, and am dabbling in machine-quilting. Some fabric paint is also used, and I’m not shy about experimenting with other embellishments. The bag of tricks is always growing!
I like to work from photographs and have the capability to blow up images to almost any size. I use these enlargements as templates for piecing, applique, and embroidery.
I also make t-shirt quilts on commission. These will be machine-pieced and quilted.
