I started quilting over thirty years ago and have created many quilts for family and friends – many inspired by the fabrics of artist Kaffe Fassett. Over ten years ago, I began making floorcloths using paint and stencils. Soon after, I discovered the process of using fabric with floorcloths instead of paint and have been refining that process over time. I found I was able to combine my love of quilting into functional pieces of work for the floor or table. Initially I made my fabric floorcloths for my home and then for friends. With the encouragement of my friends and family, I started showing my work locally and have been involved in markets, shows and custom work. The availability of vivid and colorful fabrics have been a source of inspiration for my work. My fabric floorcloths and placemats are durable coverings for use on hard floors and table tops, to add protection, interest and beauty to a home.
