Here’s the Story
I started making patchwork quilts in 1992 when my sister requested one for her birthday. Before that fateful day, I had sewn everything from baby clothes to wedding dresses, but quilting captured my heart with its combination of practicality, artistic expression, and historical connection to the traditional skills of American women.
Since moving from Madison, Wisconsin thirteen years ago, I have been making quilts here in my studio on Inis Oírr. Based on traditional patterns with a modern aesthetic, I am strongly influenced by the colors, land, and seascapes of my new home in the West of Ireland.
