Waterford/Leesburg, Stop #12
I create miniature quilts inspired by traditional 19th century designs. Each miniature quilt captures the essence of an actual 19th century American pieced quilt or quilt pattern. These quilts, often preserved in museums or private collections, are priceless expressions of early American creativity and design.
Each quilt tells a story, reflecting the original quilter and her world. I am drawn to the geometric designs and rich colors of early pieced quilts and often add my 21st century spin. Some works are quiet and elegant, others boldly abstract and surprisingly contemporary. All share a connection with the most dynamic and fascinating century in American quilting.
Offering on tour: Miniature quilts, framed or mounted ready for framing, and giclée prints. Quilting demonstrations. Refreshments.
