Quilt and Fiber Artist


Arabesque Quilt

South African Sunshine Quilt

I started sewing at an early age under the tutelage of my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who were avid handiwork enthusiasts.  Throughout school, I was heavily involved in the New York State 4-H Program having won many awards for my sewing at county and state fairs.  My sewing runs the gamut from home decoration, tailoring, sewing for hire to sewing costumes for an amateur choral group in Kuwait.  I jokingly used to tell people that I would take up quilting when I retired!  That became reality when my husband and I moved from Cairo, Egypt to Kuwait City, Kuwait in 2001.  Quilting was a natural extension of the sewing skills I have.  I prefer quilting to garment making these days.  I love embellishing, figuring out how to make something three dimensional, and how to make something unique.  I am afraid I do not follow the "Quilt Police" rules willingly!  I love to play with thread to enhance my quilts.  My fabric stash is a sore subject in our house.  My husband, Tim, calls me a "Pilot"!  Pile it here, pile it get the picture.  I have never ever met a fabric I did not like.  I enjoy being what quilters call a SABLE.  (Stash Above and Beyond Life Expectancy),
