-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  Quilt size: 98" x 110"
-  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? "Each block is a traditional rose pattern. Each block has a traditional name. I collected them from different sources and chose the most intricate. The border (trellis) is my own design. There are 20 blocks: Missouri Rose, Harrison Rose, Album Rose Wreath, Tree Rose, Rose of Sharon With Buds, North Carolina Rose, Sadie's Choice Rose, Rose Wreath, Mrs. Potter's Rose Applique, Tea Rose, Wild Rose, Victorian Rose, Roses in a wreath, Old Fashioned Rose, Whig Rose, Rose Spray, Virginia Rose, American Beauty Rose, Rose and Rosebud Wreath, Album Roses."
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "I always wanted a red, white and green quilt for myself -- I have made many quilts for other people, especially the years I owned (Quilts and Such) a quilt store in Taos, New Mexico. Since then I have continued doing quilt restorations and private commissions. My favorites to restore are crazy quilts and hand applique."
-  What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "My neighbor suggested I enter and brought me the entry information. No, I have never before entered a contest but I am working on another quilt now which I plan to enter."
-  How long have you been making quilts? How did you learn to quilt? "28 years -- I am listed in the book 'Quilt Restoration, a Practical Guide' by Camilly Dalphond Cognac under Resources for Quilt Repair in Colorado. 1994 published." She learned by "Instruction from my mother, Jean Morgan, Pine Grove, Penna. Interested in my Penna. Dutch heritage. Many hours of practice and reading in trying to improve my techniques."
-  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, it has given me a great comfort in knowing I have achieved in making a beautiful piece of art for everyone to enjoy."
