Stripping with Eleanor Burns

One of my favorite duties of being a Quilt Angel at the 35 Annual International Quilt Show in Houston Texas was being teachers pet for Eleanor's Lecture celebrating 30 years of Quilt in a Day and I got to strip with Eleanor Burns.

Flying Gosh

Four years ago when our son Christopher died suddenly at age 20 I could hardly bare it. Unable to deal with his loss I gave most of his belongings to charity. My bff KK intercepted some of his clothing and gave them back to me earlier this year. I am calling his memorial quilt Flying Gosh. The heaven headed flying geese blocks were made with his t shirts and shorts. This quilt was made possible by a wise friend that stored Chris's clothes for three years. Thanks KK.

Breaking Dishes

This is my bff KK we have been friends for almost 40 years. She inspired me to quilt. This is a quilt I made for her that I named Breaking Dishes.
