one foot square quilts

My "Peace Signs" quilt is now on view on the SAQA website, third page of the 12" square pieces for their auction. Here's the link:

Jamie Fingal has a cool looking quilt with lots of metal on the same page.

Speaking of peace signs, I'm trying to finish my original peace quilt. It's the first one I started, the last one to be finished. My aim is to finish it in time for Houston.

Adventures Start Here

I'm proud to be part of the 9-member team that created wall hangings (one huge one, two smaller panels on either side) for the children's section of the Orange Public Library, which opened today.

The second photo shows me by the section I worked on, with part of the train and rocket. You can read more about the quilt at

For info about pre-ordering the book, go to

sneak peek

I've been busy. My website is up! Check it out at Also, I finished my "Peace in Bloom" quilt, but I can't show it yet because I want to enter it in Fiber Fest.

I'm donating a 12" x 12" piece for the SAQA auction. I'm calling it "Peace Signs." It's hand appliqued, machine quilted, embroidered, and stenciled.


My "Landslide" quilt has been to Road to California and was at Soft Expressions in Anaheim in March with the other Earth quilts. They're calling the exhibit "Noble Elements: Earth" now. For the rest of the year, the exhibit will be in the Sew, Quilt andEmbroidery Festival. Here are the places and dates:

Cincinnati, OH June 28 - 30
Saratoga Springs, NY July 6 - 8
Honolulu, HI August 3 - 5
Reno, NY August 24 - 26
San Rafael, CA August 30 - September 1
Council Bluffs, IA September 21 - 23
