I’ve always been one to become obsessed over things. I’ve grown house plants, played D&D for hours on end (a long time ago), bred and showed cocker spaniels, painted, and… well, the list goes on! When I started quiltling back in 1991, I guessed it would just be another phase, something fun to do for a while. Little did I know that it would become a career. It still amazes me.
The creative journey is amazing. When the creative muse hits, you
can become consumed - driven beyond reality. I love those moments.
Those journeys are unstoppable. It is like being on a river raft racing
through the rapids and nothing you can do will change your course. When
the river is quiltmaking, the quilt is finished, and the river is
running smooth again - you can look at the work and go, “Wow, where did
THAT come from”. Then you crash. But it’s a good crash. Anyone ever
experienced that ride?
