My love affair with quilts began in the 1970’s during the crafts revival. I was sewing clothing during that time, and the idea of using up scraps appealed to me. I was also drawn to the strong geometric designs. Despite my interest, I never seem to get around to making many. The ones below are some of the traditionally-based quilts I have made.
