Classical Quilting

People ask me if I create classical quilts. Yes I do, specifically to gift or if I need another patchwork blanket.


My focus today, is on teaching and creating art quilts.


Today I sorted some of my photo albums, I am making an effort to digitalize my photos and I found an album with photos that I had taken at an exhibition that I had given 35 years ago.


My go to was the log cabin pattern. I have always used upcycled fabrics and always had strips and odd small pieces of fabric. The log cabin design lends itself to using scraps.

It is also extremely versatile as it has many different layouts.

I also had a period where I was very drawn to Amish quilts and made a few for the exhibition as well.
