-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  How long have you been making quilts? How did you learn to quilt? "I made my first quilt in 1977. I taught myself the basics from books and have been developing my own techniques in the last 8 years."
-  Quilt size: 48" x 76"
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "I wanted to use all 'shiny fabrics' for the snow and sky so they shimmer in the right light. I bleached the blue fabric of the tree shadows. Whenever I see a different shade or texture of a fabric I might use in a quilt, I but it to add to my inventory so I have lots of choices."
-  What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "I try to enter two quilts per year into National/International competitions. As a member of AQS and IQA, I enter those shows especially. It's very exciting and satisfying for my work to be juried into major exhibits."
-  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? "It gave me even more confidence to be recognized on a national level and reinforces my belief that quiltmaking is more than what it is perceived to be. The public gives my work more value now that it has a major award."
