"Rising Moons, like all my quilts, started with a basic idea. There is constant change with the 'idea' as the quilt progresses. I use the felt wall method to build my quilts, sewing only small sections together at a time. This makes it easier to make a change. I piece by hand because so many of the pieces are cut on the bias and it is easier to make a correction. It is not unusual for me to make five or six changes before being satisfied with the result. Quilting is a wonderful way of expressing yourself and allowing your creative spirit to come forward. I firmly believe all of us have the ability to create. Work to please yourself and just be true to your own ideas."
