One Quilter’s Journey
Unbeknownst to my general public
most of my life I have made my own
clothes, among other things. In my mid
thirties I discovered Amish Quilts,
studied them, analyzed them, then
made them; nearly all of them.
The purples, blacks, prussian blues,
burgandies and greens captured me,
and I was hooked on their geometry,
precision and workmanship.
Several dozen quilts later, I joined a
guild, the only one in NYC. Then
taught, coached and became the
quilting inside politician and historian.

words than needle and thread, I keep on
In the process of thinning out my quilt
library, I will be publishing bibliographies,
suggestions and book reviews for quilters
at all skill levels.
