“Quilting is painting with needles.”
I have been a fiber artist for many years, but never knew that is what I was called. Instead of using watercolors or oil paints, I paint with fabric and thread to create my pictures.
I love to create wall hangings using hand appliqué and embroidery. Many of my wall hangings, such as the herons and the orange flowers, are inspired by Sarah Rosedahl, a watercolor artist and fellow CIAO member. The owl is taken from a drawing by my grandson, Todd. Others , like the honeybees, are my own creations.
I also make memory quilts made from little girl’s dresses, picture quilts, and t-shirt quilts.
As a professional quilter, I use an industrial quilting machine, both for my own quilts and wall hangings and for those of other people as well. The quilting or stitching is what holds the three layers of the quilt sandwich together.
I crochet scarves, shawls, hats, headbands and flowers for my hats. Just recently I started making clay buttons to use on my scarves and sweaters.
My husband came up with my business name, Quit Your Stitchin’, which means “Let me stitch (quilt or crochet) for you!”
I love what I do! Creating!
