There’s something indescribably delicious about creating something that fills the need for both beauty and function. Quilting is like gardening…and like knitting… and like writing. You start out with an empty piece of ground, a blank piece of paper, a skein of wool, a stack of colourful fabrics. And then you create. Here are a few of the quilts I’ve made over the years.

  1. I love all the creativity involved not only with the quilts, but with the photography. I wish I had pictures like that of some of the dozens of quilts that I’ve made and given away over the years!

  2. It was nice to see you on my blog-thanks for coming by. Now that I see your beautiful photography and to find another Yukon quilter–awesome!

    I adore the picture of the quilt rolled up and sitting on the deck by the lake–adore it!! And I smiled at the one of you in the river in order to get that ‘perfect’ picture of the quilt.
