My first thoughts of making a quilt, many years ago were daunting. It seemed way more difficult than all the clothing I had sewn since the age 12. In Japan I learned to draft my own clothing patterns for myself and five children. That skill helped me later to draft my own quilt patterns, make templates, do measurements and seldom use kits and commercial patterns. Scrappy designs appeal to me because they are one-of-a-kind. Belonging to quilting groups and entering in judged shows has been beneficial to enhance my skills. Two of my quilts have been juried into the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. One other hung in a small Quilt Museum in Washington for three months. I have independently sold many quilts, given to family, friends and or folks experiencing a tragic house fire or other catastrophes. A quilt soothes a heart, each recipient tells me. My hope is that you will be blessed by having one of my quilts and feel joy in your heart, too.
