How long have you been quilting? Since 1994
What is your favorite quilting tool? My saddle chair–keeps my back straight while quilting and cuts down on shoulder/neck pain
What are your favorite fabric lines and substrates? This changes a lot; but if I’m looking for a solid I like Michael Miller’s cotton couture and quilting linen; love the bamboo and recycled plastic bottle battings from Quilters Dream
Do you prefer prints or solids? Depends on the project
What is your favorite color combination? I have an entire Pinterest board of color combos, I tend to start projects by looking at those.
Favorite and least favorite parts of the quilting process: least fave: binding; favorite part: picking out the color combo and finding fabrics to match
Why do you quilt? It is part of my creative arts practice along with collage and monoprinting. There is a lot of research out there on how a creative practice supports well-being, and this is one of the main reasons I quilt.
Where do you find inspiration? Everywhere!
Quilters who inspire you: I am including other artists here Sherri Lynn Wood, Jane Davies, Sarah Golden, John Vitale, Joe the Quilter, Rebecca Sower, Rebecca Chapman, Jennifer Candon
What is your favorite guilty pleasure while quilting? Listening to the podcast “Shagged, Married, Annoyed” when piecing or designing; and jamming out to Christmas songs or classical music while machine quilting
Tell us something about yourself that might surprise us: I speak Thai and Hungarian because I lived in both places.
