Quilt: a bed coverlet of two layers of cloth filled with padding (as down or batting), held in place by ties or stitched designs.
- Merriam-Webster Dictionary
To many, a quilt is much more than that. Perhaps seeing the quilt and fabrics jog a memory; using the quilt brings comfort and warmth; touching the quilt allows an appreciation of the hours spent making it; or simply looking at the quilt offers an interesting and pleasing sense of design. Quilts are so much more than two layers of cloth filled with padding. Whether the recipient, viewer, or creator, a quilt evokes a multitude of emotions and can become a treasured piece.
As a quilt maker, I find inspiration everywhere. My latest series allows me to combine photographs with fabrics. Next month may bring new ideas and change the path of my work. Please browse the galleries, and feel free to send me any comments or questions.
