Early Work

Gifts for family & friends, workshop attendance & stitching samples for the classes I was teaching constituted my early work. I was honing my skills with the rotary cutter on traditional patterns with a modern twist. The Afro American style of quilting influenced my log cabin blocks in Crazee Kactus Quilt © 1992 which used Desert Designs curtain fabric.

I embraced machine quilting which was in its infancy in Australia. Queensland Holiday Menu- Beef & Reef © 1995 was made for a Mt Isa Quilters Challenge & I designed it while driving back from McKinlay after a teaching weekend.
