I have had a lifelong love of horses, and the
Arabian breed I find to be the most compelling
of all in their beauty and heart. A Bedouin myth
states that this horse was created out of a sandstorm
as a gift from Allah to those nomadic people.
Over 175 pieces of fused, raw edge appliqué, fabric inks, paints,
colored pencils, and 50+ hours of hand beadwork, crystals and
shisha mirrors helped bring this event to life.

I Love Applique and I love Edyta Sitar's quilts. I made this quilt for my sewing room. The hand applique took several months but well worth it.

Dream Willow, Chartreuse
Quilt #: 1022377 Added on 09/24/2013
This was part of a color challenge using Joan Wolframs' 24 colors, by my friendship group, VisTA. I had been wanting to memorialize a willow tree I used to drive by when going to work. In the spring, with the sun rising behind it, especially after a rain, it was spectacular.

This was part of a guild challenge to make a quilt from recycled materials. This design came from dreams I'd had - I was hoping to get people to think about the effect they have on their surroundings and the environment.

This was made as a Christmas gift for my granddaughter. She wanted a purple hippo, but once we started looking at fabric she wanted all of it. Isn't that just like a quilter! The center medallion was inspired by a watercolor drawing by Jo Lynch, whose work is incredibly delightful. This particular drawing was a perfect way to incorporate all the joyful fabrics that Amber chose. I added the appliqué butterflies for the final touch of whimsy.

Shoe with Hyacyth Blossom
Quilt #: 1022320 Added on 08/14/2013
I create many shoe quilts in many different styles. To get around the very high thin heal I used pen and gold watercolour. I have found it looks a bit messy to sew a thin heel like this and drawing it on is the answer. I enjoy creating all sorts of different shoe bows and will often create a flower put on a piece of old jewellery to embellish the shoe.

I love the "Angleplay Blocks' and the fun and different looks a quilt can take by the use of color/fabric placement. I was introduced to Margaret Miller; creator of "Angleplay Blocks", on "The Quilt Show" several years ago!
This quilt will be traveling with the 2013 Hoffman Fabric Challenge trunk shows this next year.

The design of this quilt was original with 2 commericial components--the embroidered dragonflies and the egret pattern. Charleston Beckonings was created as a way of expressing my connection to the lowcountry of South Carolina--where I live. It is a way of acknowledging the things that are important and natural in the midst of continuous growth and change.

American Hero Quilt
Quilt #: 1000167 Added on 01/02/2007
I created this quilt on EQ5 to be donated to the "American Hero Quilt" project. This quilt was given to a young woman returning injured from Iraq. She lost one of her legs and was seriously injured in her torso. She said the quilt "made her feel pretty", which made me feel happy and sad at the same time.

Our guild had a star BOM 2012. I wanted to do something different with my block so I adapted the 12" blocks to the Stepping Stones pattern that I had saved from the American Patchwork magazine.
