The reoccurring global fires inspired this work. The challenge was to translate with fabric the power, the heat, and total devastation of a forest fire. Frantic animals flee the fiery forces. Deer and other animals are known to seek refuge in a lake or river.

Created from a photograph taken by my son Loren while he was in France. The photograph showed a misty day with fall colors. I hand painted all of the background fabric separately and then sewed it together using a raw edge technique to keep the edges soft. I then drew and painted the castle and stitched it into place. The border is a commercially purchased fabric. It is quilted on my domestic sewing machine.

The design elements are all freehand drawn and painted then embellished with gel pen designs and beaded. Originally inspired by Moroccan Tiles but I went astray!
My goal was to make the elements appear to be floating.

An oldie, but goodie! I purchased this kit back when Moonglow was first published more than 10 years ago. I saw a lady at quilt guild show this quilt and she reported that it was the most difficult quilt she has ever made. I promptly put my kit on the shelf thinking that one day it wouldn't be so difficult. This was the year I figured I was finally skilled enough to take it on. I have made many difficult quilts, but I must say that I agree, this is the most difficult quilt I have ever made! So many 'Y' seams... But I have to say, it is well worth the effort! This was made for my son for his college graduation gift.

This quilt was a result of a design workshop taught by Jane Sassaman. I found this workshop quite a challenge but learned so much about design and color.

Inspired by early 1900 Roseville pottery from Pennsylvania. This was my first attempt at needle turn applique and I loved it, but what should have taken 13 months stretched into a 12 year project!

I wanted a motif to be the focus of a colourful embroidered quilt - hence elephants. I learned a lot doing this quilt - mostly how to it better next time.

A photograph taken while visiting Brussels inspired this quilt. It is a combination of hand painted and commercial fabrics, all 100% cotton. The little houses were constructed separately and machine appliqued. I used fabric markers and oil pastel sticks for the accents. The reflections in the lake are smudged oil pastel sticks. Quilting was done on my domestic machine.
