- - The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
- - If your quilt is based on a traditional pattern or an earlier quilt, what is the name of the pattern? Where did you learn the pattern? "The pattern is from a lovely antique quilt in the Newark, New Jersey Museum. It was pictured in the Woman's Day Book of Needlework (published sometime in the early 1970's) and I thought it was the most beautiful thing I'd seen!"
- - "I had to draft the compasses and the large applique Princess Feathers."
- - How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "I found a large floral print with a dark blue background and selected coordinating prints for it. I wanted a variety of prints, predominantly dark and similar to the old prints (although the original was done in reds)."
- - Quiltmaker's motivation: "This is a beautiful quilt and I wanted to have it! Several friends pieced a block for the quilt as part of a group. I pieced the remainder and assembled, appliqued, and quilted the quilt. So it is a special 'friendship' quilt too."
- - What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "I enjoy entering competitions to show my work and to get feedback. I'm a professional quiltmaker; I teach, judge, and have co-authored three quilt making books."
- - How long have you been making quilts? "25 years." / How did you learn to quilt? "Self-taught -- in Hawaii, with a Hawaiian quilt which, again, I 'had to have.' Books, magazines, many workshops have honed my skills."
- - Has being a winner in the Land's End contest made a difference in your life? Has it changed the way you look at your work as a quilt maker? "Being a winner in the Land's End contest reinforced my feeling that quilts are art. I am pleased to have my work recognized as such."
