I have been a member of QGBI for ten years and am very grateful to those who introduced me as I am having a fabulous time here! I was a Trustee between 2012 and 2018 which gave me opportunities I never anticipated - involvement in the direction of the Guild and overseas exhibitions featuring strongly. My preference is for contemporary quilting though a well designed in terms of colour and beautifully quilted traditional quilt can still catch my breath. I am a member of CQ and participate regularly in the Journal Quilt challenge, a topic on which I give talks. I am also a member of MQ though still coming to terms with defining the difference between modern and contemporary. I hold a C&G Diploma in Hand Embroidery and use my learning in that discipline to inform embellish my quilts.
