My maternal grandmother and her mother created this crazy quilt. It was made from dresses and blouses and shirts that had outlived one use and were put to another. They obviously enjoyed themselves and didn’t worry about the “right” or “wrong” way to create. the pinwheel pattern repeats in many squares – but not all of them!

I try to keep their principle of taking pleasure in the work of creation in mind as I work on this website. By necessity, I need to follow more rules than my grandmothers did, but I too, work with bits that I enjoy. I hope you find some enjoyment in these pages too!

I’d love to hear from you. – in the comments section, please give me an idea of what on the website caught your eye – dogs, bugs, writing, NYSTCE test prep . . . the contents are something of a crazy quilt, I know.
