- - The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
- - Quilt size: 80" x 108"
- - 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? "I used the center and designed the rest of my quilt to my liking." She learned the pattern from "Quiltmaker Magazine Fall/Winter 1988."
- - How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "Materials were all purchased new. I chose materials with a mauve accent."
- - What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "Curiosity, to see if I could win. I usually only enter my quilts in local quilt shows or at fairs."
- - How long have you been making quilts? How did you learn to quilt? "10 years. My goal is to make one a year until my children and grandchildren have a quilt. I've taken quilting classes and still continue to take class for new patterns and techniques."
- - 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? "Yes, I usually study my pattern and colors until I get a combination I like. Sometimes that does not always turn out the way one thinks it will due to the overall pattern. I try and do my best in the quilting, with even small stitches, in case it would be entered in a contest someday, but usually just for my own satisfaction."
