- - The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
- - Quilt size: 90"x 87"
- - Where did you learn the pattern? "Learned from numerous Amish quilt books"
- - How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "The bold printed fabric was given to me by my best friend who at the time was living in Zaire, Africa. She purchased the hand printed fabric in a local market. It was an amount of fabric usually purchased for a garment. I was challenged by the colors and because of the strong friendship I wanted to create a quilt that would always remind me of her time in Africa. The red and purple seemed to be natural solids to compliment the print. I chose an Amish pattern because I wanted large pieces of the print to dominate the quilt."
- - What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "I had never entered a quilt contest before and when a neighbor mentioned the contest to me I thought why not? I was curious to see if anyone else would like my work and consider it good enough to win a prize."
- - How long have you been making quilts? How did you learn to quilt? "I began quilting in 1982. After experimenting on my own I took a piecing and quilting class at a local quilt store."
- - 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, after winning the contest it gave me more confidence about my work. I always try to do the best job I can and winning made me feel as though not only friends and family like my work but impartial people see my work as a project well done."
