I have been quilting since 1973 and am one of the founding members of the Guild.
I used to hand quilt a lot but I don’t anymore. Allergies prevent me from sewing more than 2½ hours a day. I still hand quilt small projects.
I have a weakness for scrap quilts (weakness IS the right word) but enjoy applique, both traditional and modern. I have completed several jacobean quilts and quite a number of Hawaiian quilts and wall hangings.
I enjoy making raffle quilts. I have made fund raising quilts for the Northwest Association of Beagle Clubs (this year’s is number 27) and raffle quilts for our local 4-H groups.
My current project is an oval mariner’s compass with an ocean waves border that has 1243 2" half-square triangles. This quilt is at the request of my daughter and I am not enjoying this particular project.
