Creating art quilts is how I can be "plaid" in a "striped" world.

Cutting Loose 22" x 22" 2011
Once upon a time I took a class to learn how to construct a New York Beauty block, which has radiating points that demand extreme precision. What was I thinking??? Of course mine emerged with some measurement issues but lots of personality, I thought. However, the teacher said she could tell I had a bad attitude, and so my cheery but lopsided beauties were buried with a bunch of other abandoned projects. Fast forward about 5 years during which I've learned to let my unruly attitude shine forth. Digging around for some way to illustrate the word rejoice, my little beauties jumped out and said, "Cut loose with us!" They sure look happy to me.
