In 2013, I celebrated the one-year anniversary of making my first quilt, finishing two quilts started at the 2012 Folk Art Quilting Retreat with Sue Spargo and Gwen Marston in Sisters, Oregon. Both were displayed at the Northwest Quilters annual show in the spring. My only goal was to participate in the show as a first-time quilt maker. Later in the year, "Wild-Eyed Susans" received an honorable mention at the Pacific West Quilt Show in Tacoma, Washington- my first judged show. "Center Star" was recently accepted in MANifestations, the upcoming exhibit at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum featuring the work of men who make quilts. Both quilts were also published in Quiltmania Magazine.
