THIS PAGE IS DEVOTED TO THINGS THAT INSPIRE ME
My great-grandmother made this 1930's quilt. It's very special to me.
This beautiful butterfly quilt was made by my Great-Grandmother. The fabrics are 1930's and possibly some 1940's. What a treasure! I remember sleeping under this and other old quilts while growing up.
My mother didn't quilt or sew or craft, but my grandmothers did. However, neither were quilters. Guess it skipped a couple generations. When I was little I just had to create with fabric. I started with old socks to make doll clothes. I think it was just something I inherited from previous generations.
My Grandma Dorothy taught me to embroider and crochet. My Aunt Mary taught me to knit. Mrs. Ott, my home-ec teacher, taught me to sew. I pretty much taught myself to quilt.
Nature inspires me. I think of it as "artwork by God'. No one can outdo that! This is a beautiful sunrise over Whitefish Bay, summer 2011.
