the synergy of quilting

I love joining fabrics from near and far into something new and unanticipated. Call it the synergy of quilting. A practical art, quilting has been undertaken in many circumstances–by firelight, as a project for many hands, for a few minutes a day for months on end. In that spirit, using modern machine quilting techniques, I produce mainly useful items, designed for the heat of daily use.

I also have a button box that was my grandmother’s. Many of my pieces feature a good luck button.
