Ola Pola is a named after a Ukrainian chocolate wafer candy. I gifted it to a friend of mine who was born in Poland and loves sweets.
An experiment with "long" triangles resulted in this couch quilt I gifted to my brother Mark.
Sewing long triangle pairs together with a gentle curve instead of a straight line was the first step toward making this quilt, which I gifted to my brother Paul and his wife Jane.
Flight of Fancy
Some of my best quilts start out because I'm bored and I'm just playing around. Here, I thought I'd make some birds and give them stories. From there I started making birds based on real people. At first I thought this would be just a couch quilt, but now I think I'll submit it to the AQS shows.
I made this one for my niece Ellen, who'll be graduating from high school this year.
