Orange Blossom Special
Quilt #: 1017788 Added on 10/04/2010
This is my 2010 entry into the National Quilt Museum's "New Quilts from an Old Favorite" contest. The theme is the orange peel block. Great fun to work on and a real challenge to quilt.

Scrappy Baby Blossom
Quilt #: 1011693 Added on 10/24/2008
I found this fun little block called 'pineapple blossom' on www.quiltville.com and adapted it for paper foundations. I liked it so much that I made at least six tops using it. This was the first one, and it was made almost entirely with scraps that I had left over from several baby quilts that I had made in the past few years.

It is important to me that my art quilts suggest a meaning to the viewer rather than simply decorate walls. Underlying much of my work is the theme of wonderment for the workings of the earth.
This quilt is composed of commercial cottons and decorative threads. The work is hand appliqued and embroidered, machine pieced, couched, and quilted.

It's a Crazy Life
Quilt #: 1013300 Added on 03/03/2009
It's a Crazy Life , is a quilt about me ...some of my likes, beliefs, journeys, ...I have had endless crazy adventures that helped me evolve into who I am today. This quilt was inspired by Sharon Schamber.
It's a Crazy Life I worked on before, during and after cancer treatment. It is not a perfect quilt and shows at times how I felt yet it is still me..since this photo I have done some more work on it and probably always will...

Tree of Life adaptation
Quilt #: 1011930 Added on 11/27/2008
This quilt is my second FLW from a class with Diane Monde E Aurora made by changing the pattern slightly to use bias tape instead of thin stips of black fabric. It took me quite some time to complete.

I fell in love with the graphics designed by John Langdon for Dan Brown's book "Angles & Demons" I asked John for permission to use them in my quilt and he graciously agreed. The center graphic and the four words for the elements are ambigrams. The graphics read the same right side up and upside down. The quilt design is original. This quilt lived on my design wall for nearly five years as I learned and developed techniques that allowed the work to progress. I hope you enjoy it.

Caroline Sharkey meets Ricky Tims underwater!
Quilt #: 1014388 Added on 06/07/2009
I attended a workshop with Caroline Sharkey of NSW Australia for her "Painting with Fabrics & Threads" technique and used a Ricky Tims Convergence for the background. I'd taken a photograph of a turtle at an aquarium so used my drawing from that as the pattern.
Snippets of fabrics & threads were placed onto the background and covered with water soluble fabric and machine stitched to keep the threads in place, then it was rinsed to get rid of the washaway. The turtle was made with the same technique and appliqued into place.
I used a sparkle fabric for the border with two rows of shaggy wool to define the border.

Water Lilly Pool

Needle turn appliqué is the technique used here. I love how the bright batik fabrics sparkle against the dark pool of water background.

I saw Aie Rossman's work on Simply Quilts and had to have one of her patterns. I omitted the appliqued border and chose to machine quilt the border with the the applique design with a verigated thread.

Through The Stars, To The Stars
Quilt #: 1001967 Added on 03/21/2007
I made this little quilt for the first House of Fabrics/SoFro contest in 1989. It won the Grand Prize and they sent me a lovely check and a box of goodies. Their businesses have since disappeared. I hope it wasn't me. The quilt now is on permanent loan to my mother, Regina Smith, who lives in Corpus Christi, TX, just up the road a piece. It was one of my first attempts at making a two dimensional surface appear to be three dimensional. It's rather faded since this picture was taken, but still looks quite good for its age.

My daughter bought the pattern and border fabric for me Mothers Day 2000 (3rd grade). I finished it on Mother's Day 2008 (she was a junior). It took a while to hand applique, so I decided to have it machine quilted so she could have it before she graduated!

Quilt made as an exercise in color value. I made this for a class taught by Helene Knott at Story Quilts. After playing with several layouts, I decided to simulate a burst of light near the center, fading to dark edges. I was thinking about how often dreams have a core of truth surrounded by ambiguity and darkness.
Quilting depicts a mermaid surrounded by animal friends (horse, dolphin, turtle, squirrel, bird, and fish).

This quilt presented major challenges in getting the right fabric to reflect the coloration of the dogs. The more black dog had brown hightlights, and The brindle's coloration just didn't match any fabrics I could find in terms of color and texture until a lucky find in batiks at a quilt store brought the design together.
