-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  This quilt is an original design.
-  Quilt size: 75" x 75"
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "I used what I had on hand and fabrics given to me by our quilt guild friends -- Loose Threads Quilt Guild of St. Charles. Was a beginner quilter so I didn't have much to choose from."
-  Quiltmaker's motivation: "To enter in the AQS -- American Quilters Society Quilt Show."
-  What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "I enter for the competition -- I want to win. I love to design and competitions get us to stretch and develop new techniques. Even if a quilt doesn't turn out as planned, I still enter because it's fun to share. My thoughts: winning is great but losing is better than not entering."
-  How long have you been making quilts? "1998 marks seven years." / How did you learn to quilt? "From our guild members."
-  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? "This contest was the most rewarding. Winning out of 4600 entries encouraged me to continue in the art, being in the Library of Congress is the most exciting event of my life; knowing my great grandchildren can come see their dizzy ole granny is awesome."
