Even though my original forum for expressing myself was fashion, I have fallen hard for quilting. Quilting is a better choice for my creative expression because it satisfies my New England Yankee (as in frugal) sensibilities. I loved to design and make formal wear but I was frustrated by the limited shelf life of a formal garment. Once you've worn it and had your Cinderella moment the novelty of the garment has diminished. I've found that this phenomenon does not exist when it comes to quilts. Quilts never go out of style, don't need to be fitted and you can use them again and again. Please enjoy a stroll through my gallery.
