Many people think of quilts as utilitarian bedcovers made for warmth and some think of it as a lost art. Quilting is now considered an art form, and I use this art to express my creativity, my heritage, and to tell stories that are important to me.
While many may think of quilting as a lost art, or something your grandmother and her friends used to do to pass the time while gossiping, you will find that quilting today is very much a new and enriched art form.
