QuiltCon 2017

Two of my quilts were included in the "Quilt Design a Day" show at QuiltCon 2017, sponsored by the Modern Quilt Guild.




One of the quilts included were "Reflective Windows," which uses a simple repeating block with a transparency illusion. The quilt is finished with straight line quilting in black, white and teal blue.



The second quilt included is "High Line Medallion," which uses geometric forms to re-imagine traditional Medallion quilts. I added hand quilting to keep the texture soft and emphasize the angular shapes.

Teacup Pincushion

I made this teacup pincushion last year from a vintage Fiestaware cup and saucer. It was a fun little project, and now it's featured in Issue 18 of Make Modern Magazine!



Ontario Museum of Art

My quilt "Star at Sea" is included in the exhibition Modern Quilts: Redesigning Tradition  at the Ontario Museum of Art. The show highlights the ways that "modern quilters consider traditional patterns in new and exciting ways." My asymmetrical interpretation of the traditional "Storm at Sea" pattern is an excellent example of this type of modern traditionalism.



Modern Flower Quilt

I designed this quilt with a low-contrast background and geometric flowers as a gift for my mother, a master gardener.



The shape of the flowers is reminiscent of the birds of paradise that grow in my mom's garden.
