My first exposure to quilting was at the Kutztown State Fair, in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish region. Their incredible work was hung on the barn walls , framing the black buggies and sheepskins on display.
I still feel that they are masterworks, and the balance, simplicity and sue of color inspire me even today.
I began piecing my own hand dyed muslin squares in the early '80's,
then the dots crept in-
.....and segued into the massive dottiness that is typical of my new tradition today-
Don't know yet what I'll do for this one, but it'll be fun!
