Three Cousins circa 1922

I have always loved this photograph of my mother (right) and her sister with their cousin from Virginia. I printed it on fabric. For the background I used some of my discharged fabric with leaves and evergreen needles on it. I added stamped images of leaves. On the left there is an orange produce bag with leaves "free-motion" sewn over it.

Peyton's Trees

This quilt is based on one of Peyton's paintings that he did for his senior show at Atlanta College of Art. I used the discharge method to create the negative space. Since this is an whole cloth quilt, I quilted in the negative space.


My goal for the last couple of days has been to reorganize my studio. This led to the discovery of old projects that had not been finished. I have started tackling some of these UFO's. The Amaryllis quilt was the first one that I completed. I started it about 7 years ago and ran into some road blocks. I have learned what to do with those.

Bear Paw Quilt

This is the quilt made by the Pieceful Mountain Quilt Guild in Blue Ridge, GA. It is being sent to the Georgia Quilt Council to be auctioned off in January 2011. The center is the one that I created.
