Fibonacci Study in Blue and Orange – I bought an interesting set of gradient, hand-dyed fabrics at a quilt show years ago, and and couldn’t decide what to do with it, until I started thinking about evolution of ideas and shapes. Completed in 2018, 31″ x 39″. On display at Arrowhead Gallery and Studios. $420
Dreamwing – Inspired by one of my favorite poems by Verna Sheard. Completed in 2018, 37″ x 29″. On display at Arrowhead Gallery and Studios. $385.
Gatherings – I am thrilled that Darcy and Doug Orr commissioned me to create a quilt for the Swannanoa Gathering, a series of music workshops held each summer on the campus of Warren Wilson College. The quilt is displayed during concerts and other events during this wonderful event that we have been a part of for so many years. It was a huge hit last summer at the Gathering, and I’m amazed/honored/thrilled/humbled to say it won First Place in Special Techniques at the 2014 Asheville Quilt Show, as well as the more prestigious Viewer’s Choice.

Swannanoa String Band, 1895 – In 2013, The Black Mountain Center for the Arts hosted a solo show of my work, in conjunction with the Swannanoa Valley Museum‘s seasonal opening. SVM’s lead exhibit was ‘Music in the Valley’ and was based on this wonderful vintage photograph:
Just for fun, I interpreted this photo in fabric, and it was the lead quilt in the gallery exhibit next door, at BMCA. I am pleased to say it also won First Place in Art Quilt-Pictorial in the 2014 Asheville Quilt Show, and was accepted for exhibition in the American Quilters Society 2015 show in Paducah, KY. $640
