For my art quilts, I add raw edge appliqué girls (boys and animals) on often fraying backgrounds because life doesn’t consist of neat, pressed, hidden edges. We all unravel at times, and embracing imperfections instead of trying to fix them is much more fun. Each girl (or boy) is created from several fabrics and embellished with thread and sometimes a dimensional dress that literally pops off the quilt. Text print fabrics are used for "skin" to depict the stories, memories, and wonder we each carry with us. Each of my art quilts is an adventure of stitched joy.
