Welcome to my stop on the 2019 Meet & Greet! I really love being part of the online quilting community and am happy to join with Benita who organized this!

I've been quilting since October of 2010, but it was NOT my intention to become a quilter (having already too many hobbies, in my opinion) but a friend introduced me to the rotary cutter and the classic maple leaf block made with half square triangles, and I could not resist going out immediately and buying my own rotary cutter and mat and have been an avid quilter ever since!
I made this quilt for my friend's daughter who loves Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night:
|I'm delighted to see the hundreds of scrappy 2 1/2" squares, constructed of a multitude of blue hues and tones, draw the eye into the swirling pattern of stars and then focus on the large center lone star.|

|For a patriotic coworker who retired. Original post here.|
|Another quilt made for a retired friend. She picked a charm square pack which lent itself to the color and simple patchwork on point and flower vine borders.|
|This one was gifted to my childhood friend and particularly love it because of the patriotic theme and embroidered phrases on each side.|
|Evie's Quilt. This quilt was a collaboration of ideas with Evie and myself and I would have never thought to make this quilt, but I love how it turned out. I wish you could see it in person as the photo does not do it justice. The panel and fabrics are elegant with gold metallic accents and the creamy white has a shimmery finish.|
|I got pretty creative with the quilting on the latest retirement quilt for my manager, Maggie.|
Thanks for visiting!
