Modern, colorful, and unique quilts; soft color-blocked scarves; and cards made from recycled world maps.

Quilting for me is about texture, color, and design. I also enjoy creating beautiful objects that are functional: almost all of the quilts I make are intended to be used (and washed and dried). Several of them are backed with vintage sheets. My collection of fabric is primarily quilt-shop-quality cotton, but it also includes feedsacks, cloth bags, and recycled clothing. I take inspiration from modern art, nature, and my travels. I began quilting shortly before leaving a 37-year career in teaching and librarianship, and I make quilts of all sizes, from crib quilts and wall hangings to twin and queen-size ones.

Knitting gives me another opportunity to play with texture and color, and I particularly enjoy making color-blocked scarves. I want everything I make to feel good to the touch—no scratchy fibers allowed—and I get great satisfaction out of repurposing materials. For example, I also knit small rugs out of old woolen sweaters by felting the sweaters and then cutting them into one-inch strips that become my “yarn.” 

Finally, the book lover (and, yes, the hoarder) in me can't handle seeing outdated materials tossed in the recycling bin, so I repurpose old maps, atlas pages, catalog cards and my 1960s & 70s stamp collection into greeting cards.
