As promised, I will show you the quilts from my exhibit, Finding My Voice, that was on display at QuiltWeek Chattanooga 2015.

Toile and 9-Patch
Original design
56" x 56"
Hand quilted with an original corner treatment

Dreaming of Home
Original Design
36" x 43"
A paper-pieced quilt that is a tribute to the memory of my childhood home and my hometown in Tennessee. It is hand quilted.

Easy Pinwheels
Original Design
45.5" x 45.5"
Machine Quilted by June Atkins
This was my first effort at making half-square triangles; pieced sashing with cornerstones; and piano-key borders.

Just a Bunch of Scraps
Original Design
62.5" x 62.5"
Machine Quilted by Jo McCluney
An experiment in design using leftover scraps from other projects produced this pinwheel/flying geese medallion quilt.  First time using black as a
background color.

Yule Time in the Cabin
Original Design
54.5" x 64"
Machine Quilted by Martha Steele
This quilt was a lesson in value and color.  Another technique learned was the insertion of a flange against the outer border.

Nifty Nine-Patch
Pattern by Glad Creations
87.5" x 99"
Machine Quilted by Jo McCluney
The blocks for creating this quilt are on-point 9-Patch and tessellating Courthouse Steps.  The use of the 4-Patch cornerstones kept the piano key border from being monotonous.

More to come . . . .



  1. It's so much better when we can have your commentary along with the quilt ~ ~ though the exhibit was valuable too. I could enjoy them again and again and again.

    1. It makes more sense with the commentary because you understand why I made each quilt .
