I am a passionate quilter and began quilting and sewing about 9 years ago. From the outset I was determined that I would complete every aspect of making quilts myself. This was a hard decision, given that I had never sewn before and I really am not very good at reading patterns! Regardless, though perseverance, determination, the help of good friends and the support of a loving husband, I have improved over time, Today I machine and/or hand piece my quilts, depending on the effect I am trying to achieve. I also do my own quilting, either by free motion, laser tracing or digital means. I love what I do and each year I set goals to improve in what I do - I regularly attend classes and am a member of a couple of quilting groups! My quilts are exhibited at North East Artisans in Benalla, Victoria and this year I hope to submit one of my pieces to the Australasian Quilting Expo!
