Just before Christmas 2015 I was at a session making Linus Quilts and I had an epiphany (in quilting terms) - if I waited till I could make that earth shattering, prizewinning quilt, I never would make anything so why not just make quilts that I like and hope that the recipient would enjoy as well!! And I acquired a walking foot for my sewing machine. Since then I have completed more quilts than I had ever done since becoming interested in quilting in the 1980s. Nominally I have also started using up my stash but have a sneaking feeling that it has continued to grow.

My quilts may be very simple in design and construction, but I continue to be amazed and enthralled by what other quilters produce.
