-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  Quilt size: 86" x 75.25"
-  Other techniques used included: "hand painted and hand dyed cottons."
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "Very carefully. Since the floral arrangements in the blocks were drawn to represent specific people, the fabrics were chosen to bring out each person's personality even further. I drew from my large stash of fabric. Bought fabric far and wide to add to it. Then found it necessary to paint my own fabric, in some instances, to get just the right hue."
-  Quiltmaker's motivation: "Each block represents a person near and dear to me. As I drew the blocks, I had a mental picture of that person before me. The flowers chosen, the arrangement, and the container used had to be just right."
-  What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "My close friends and quilting buddies insisted that I enter. Two of them even gave me the entry form. I do enter competitions, but not often."
-  How long have you been making quilts? "Since 1983." / How did you learn to quilt? "Self taught. I've made every mistake there is to make -- many times -- and some mistakes that no one else would even think of making."
-  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? "I now design all my quilts and draw custom floral designs for anybody that asks. Well, that is, if I know them well enough and like them well enough."
