Hand pieced; machine pieced; appliqué; hand embroidered; hand quilted

“Several years ago, a good friend, Susan Hall, taught me how to appliqué, and I fell in love with it. Using some blocks designed by Susan, some from applique books and magazines, and some I adapted myself, I worked on the blocks for about seven years and hand quilted for one year. I used scrappy backgrounds because it pleased me to do so. Even with my hands crippled with arthritis, I was determined to hand quilt this quilt.”
