Wow, I have not been on for a while, so far 2013 has been a wonderful creative year. Had our first big snowfall defenitely needed, it has been so dry. My poor plants and trees will suffer this spring if we do not get some more moisture. But the snow was so incredibly beautiful could not resist taling pictures. As far as my quilting, I am now working on the double vision series again. As you can see I am auditioning the black outlines as it is here computer generated. Well have to play some more!!! I did finish the quilt top for the Battered Womens group called Crossroads and here it is prior to the machine quilting. Does not look too cool with my red headboard but you get the picture! So one more snow picture!!!! Who knows Spring might come early!!
I am a quilter with a global perspective on needlework. I was born in Indonesia, where the fabulous batiks of the region kindled my lifelong love of fabric. I grew up in the Netherlands, where years of appreciation for the needle arts started. Upon moving to the United States in 1960, I was immediately drawn to quilting and quickly became an accomplished devotee.
Although my quilting started with a traditional approach, soon new and exciting designs took over and the traditional gave way to more innovative work. The incredible flexibility that fiber offers, attracted me to “paint” with fabrics. I have developed two new teaching procedures: “Color, Design and Theme” and “Strips ‘n Curves”. The latter is the subject of her first book, published by C&T Publishing, Inc.I now have three books out: Strips ‘n Curves” “A New Twist on Strips ‘n Curves” and “One Patch Plus” written by myself along with my daughter, Lisa Harris.
