Ursula (aka Glitter Gams)
Judge's Choice Pacific International Quilt Festival, 2006 First Place / Best Machine Workmanship New Jersey Quilt Convention, 2005
Canadian quilt artist, Martha Brown and I collaborated on this wall hanging, just completed 12/04. Martha is a good friend of mine and we designed and cut the pieces together in a hotel in Syracuse, NY (halfway point for her and I). Most of the fabrics were hand-painted by either Martha or me. She took it home and pieced this monster (I still have no idea how!). She sent it back to me and I machine quilted it using lots of metallics and cords. Most of it was bobbin quilted because of the thickness of the threads. I sent it back to her and she finished it off by binding it and putting the sleeve on. We hope to have it juried into many quilt shows across the country.

Pushing the Envelope
2003 NJ State Convention - NJ Fiber Artists Special Exhibit Invitation
I was invited to participate in a special exhibit of New Jersey fiber artists for the 2003 NJ State Convention entitled "Pushing the Envelope".  I used tons of threads and yards.  The quilting is a little over the top, but that's what I was trying to do - push the envelope.

A Real "Must See" Quilt
Here's a piece that was made for a show at the Markeim Gallery in Haddonfield, NJ.  Unfortunately, I was unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts.  Together, Carolyn Vehslage and I interpreted a sunscape artistically.  It's hard to see in this picture, but there are over 20 specialty threads used for embellishment and quilting.  All of the fabric used in the quilt was painted by hand - including the main scene.  This really is a "must see in person" quilt!  I called it Tranquility.
