Taking a walk…

One of my “kids” had an appointment and the other was going to the zoo to take photographs so I tagged along. I walked through Balboa Park which is where our world famous zoo is, stopping at the reflecting pond, it was nice to see this artist painting.

It was a beautiful day and the flowers were blooming pretty.

Looking back toward the artist

Speaking of flowers; here is a detail peek of my painted quilt (lighting not so good, sorry). See a reminder of what it looked like before it was a painted quilt.

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.


  1. I enjoyed wandering through Balboa Park the one time I was in San Diego, many years ago. You S. Californians get spoiled with blooming plants almost year round. Right now I’m swooning over my lilac bush that’s bursting with blooms. And that painted quilt, can any of the original fabric be seen at all?

  2. Things are different around here this year in part because of all the rain we had. More green, more birds, more butterflies, and more bugs! On the lower portion of the quilt, which didn’t show in that photo, some of the design/print from the original fabric does show through. If I hadn’t already submitted a photo to an art call I do believe I would paint it more so that it did not show. But that is the area my daughter pointed out when she was telling me how much she liked it… Go figure!
