The Quilting Process
I aim to create a balance between geometric pattern and the soft, earthiness of natural color in my quilts.
Many of my quilts are inspired by a traditional pattern. One thing that draws me to quilting is the endless ways a quilt pattern can be reinvented through color, scale and movement of the blocks. There are so many ways to put one's own stamp on a pattern.
The backs of my quilts are always freeform. Using remnant pieces from the front of the quilt I create a quick, improvised and balanced composition. The backs are in juxtaposition to the often orderly front of the quilt and I enjoy the backs just as much if not more than the fronts.
