I am a nurse and a quilter, both for over 20 years. My work-space and inventory is
in my home so I can be near my 3 children. I retail my craft via internet, craft fairs
and consignment. In the past I have sold by word of mouth and given away as much .
I use rotary blade cutters and scissors to cut shapes and strips of fabric, often
using handmade templates of paper or cardboard. I machine piece and machine quilt
(not long arm). I hand sew any embellishments, hanging sleeves and labels. I stuff
the items with various battings depending on the function of the piece.
The designs and patterns I choose are traditional and simple. The objects I make
are useful and practical. The fabrics I use are natural, unique and attractive--
mostly batik, tie-dyed, hand dyed, or tinted fabric in cottons and flannels.
Thus the quilted throws, baby blankets and mats, wall-hangings, table runners,
potholders, baby bibs, doll blankets, dresser toppers, etc are all sturdy, soft,
unique and beautiful. They are pieces of art meant to be used, washed and enjoyed
