There is such a rich heritage of quilting - from quilted clothing in the sixteen century to amazing American patchwork from the 1800s to today’s contemporary designs that not only stretch the imagination, but stretch your ability to create.

My inspiration? Other quilters – particularly Kitty Pippen for her use of Japanese fabrics. Amish women, black women, any women with a creative bent. Fabric - not just the traditional cotton - but unusual fabric, vintage fabric, ethnic fabric, hand-crafted fabric and embellishments.

Embroidery. I do a lot of cross-stitch embroidery and found quilts to be a fantastic way to display it.
