Quilted Prayer Rug

As part of the Quilted Prayer Rugs initiative, I designed and made this small piece, using traditional shapes from Colonial American quilts and Islamic tile to create a prayer rug that's infused with elements of two cultures. It's finished with interlocking diamond-shaped quilting and backed with a linen blend material.



The finished piece has been donated to my neighbor's mosque, where it is displayed as a wall hanging.

Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month

A quilt block I designed is featured as the Modern Quilt Guild's Block of the Month.

The block is called "Mod economy square" and it has a ton of versatility! Playing with color placement can bring several different areas to the foreground.
Just a few of the different quilt layouts you can make using this block:




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.
