The Bean

I love the metaphor of quilts for something that keeps you warm and safe in the dark of night. Probably for this reason, my quilts often contain psychological and dream images.

I work spontaneously, usually starting with only a glimmer of an idea. As the quilt develops I try not to think of it too much. When the quilt is done, I usually go “AHA!” It feels like a great gift when I look at a completed quilt and can figure out something new about myself.
