There’s something indescribably delicious about creating something that fills the need for both beauty and function. Quilting is like gardening…and like knitting… and like writing. You start out with an empty piece of ground, a blank piece of paper, a skein of wool, a stack of colourful fabrics. And then you create. Here are a few of the quilts I’ve made over the years.
