"The inspiration for this quilt began in a series of ribbon quilts. The design was sketched on graph paper and then enlarged. The ribbons were drawn freehand and transferred to the top. I am a studio art quiltmaker by profession, and I work on one quilt at a time, from start to finish; consequently, this quilt took about three weeks to complete."
