Notes
-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  Quilt size: 65" x 65"
-  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 designed my own pattern. My family and I live in a Log Cabin home. My inspiration for my quilt came from the beauty of this home. The Log Cabin is the heritage of America beginning with Abe Lincoln."
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "Scrap quilt, done in Crazy Patch and tea-dyed with bags of tea." "My dear friend, of 30 years, designs fabrics for Marcus Brothers of New York, Judie Rothermel. Her fabrics are reproductions of the past. I used all her fabrics for my quilt."
-  What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "This was the first quilt contest I had entered. Friends were calling me telling me I should enter this contest. Since then. . . In 1995 I won 2nd place in JoAnn Fabric Contest. 1997 I won 1st place in JoAnn Fabric Contest. I just enjoy and love quilting."
-  How long have you been making quilts? How did you learn to quilt? "Since the 1970's. I love giving my quilts away, as gifts or juts because they say, 'I love that quilt.' I admired Judie Rotherel and her talent for quilting. She taught me that imagination and the love of fabrics can create a beautiful quilt that will last forever. It is a expression of yourself."
-  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? "From write-ups and my picture in the newspapers, people recognize me and compliment me on my quilts. I have had calls from Texas, Michigan and Floridaàwanting me to make them a quilt! Quilting to me is not work, it's such a pleasure. I quilt day and night. This will be a part of me that I can leave my children, Steven and Traci."
