Quilt making is part of my heritage. My great-grandmother's
quilts are some of my most treasured belongings. Passing handmade
quilts down through the generations is a wonderful way of keeping in
touch with those prior generations.
For over 30 years I have been making quilts for family and friends,
celebrating special occasions, holidays, weddings, new babies, or just
to say to someone, "you're special to me". For several years I have
dozens of quilts for a nonprofit organization that gives them to
children entering crisis care, and for Quilts of Valor
Foundation, an organization that gives handmade quilts to our soldiers
hospitalized due to injuries sustained in
Afghanistan and Iraq. Proceeds from the sale of my
quilts goes toward paying for the materials I use in these donated
Kids especially love quilts and treasure their own handmade baby quilts
for years. One baby quilt I made years ago is a testament to
this. It was carried everywhere by my young friend, including spending
a year with him on a sailboat. In 8
years it survived so many washings that they can't be counted.
Unintentionally burning part of it in the oven reduced its size but not
its comfort value. And even though it was reduced to a small part
of the original, he still took it to bed each night. It was so
important to him that his parents have saved that last piece to show
his children someday.
So now I am having great fun designing and making quilts and quilted
wall hangings for my newest endeavor, Nancy's Whimsical Quilts.
You can see them all here in my Gallery of Quilts.
