Statement

As a child, I grew up watching my mother, Irene, and her friends quilting. For some reason, I never wanted to learn to quilt. About five years ago, a friend asked me to attend at Quilt Symposium. I still had no interest in quilts, but maybe wearable art.

I work at Vogue Fabrics and several years ago, we got in this great collection of fabrics and I had to have two color palettes. As I saw fabrics I thought might work, I added them to the collection. When I decided to join the mantle group, I knew these fabrics had found their purpose.

As a child growing up, my mother always took home the blue ribbons from the county fair.  There is no blue ribbon, but I would just like her to be proud of me.
