Hello, and welcome to my website.

I love designing, creating and working with fabric from intricate hand work to portrait quilts to art quilts. All of these are a pleasure to me and I do some of each. Come in and explore what I've been doing since retiring to the family homestead near Chehalis, Washington in 1995.

Indian Pipe
This ghostly looking saprophyte is found in the moist coniferous forest on our property. It is quite rare. This quilt was done with the Ruth McDowell technique, using machine piecing and quilting. The leaves of the Salad and ferns were appliqued on after the quilt was pieced. The bug, an Alder Borer, was thread painted onto the quilt.
