Handmade quilts serve as a common thread running through my life. Since childbirth, I have been surrounded by their warmth and comfort. I have volunteered with Quilts of Valor and distributed their quilts from quilters across the U.S. to wounded warriors in the DC area. All remnants from my late mother’s sewing all of our clothes were also donated for their cause. My ceramic sewn quilt series capture various types of quilts that parallel the chapters of my life story.
