I like to make all kinds of quilts, from postcard to king-size. I have a Gammill longarm quilting machine, several domestic sewing machines, and also work with a Babylock Embellishing machine. In the past few years, I have tried my hand at painting with watercolors and art journaling. I also throw in a little nature photography and the occasional travel or grandchild pictures. Thanks for stopping by!

Two Finished Pieces
I have tried mounting two of my finished art quilts on gallery-wrapped canvas. These will both be donated to a Labor Day charity auction.
Sweet, 2011, on 8" x 8" canvas
Someone may want this one for a baby's or a little girl's bedroom. First I painted the canvas in pink and blue, and stamped in Titanium White. I thought that was a little too busy, so I painted over the colors with Titanium White, allowing just a hint of the pastel colors to peek through.
On this one, the quilt covers the entire canvas, which is painted black. When seen from the side you can see the dimension added by the gallery-wrapped canvas.
