FavesF130
Favorite material is 100% cotton. The patterns, if any, are changed to fit my artistic sensitivity.
CustomsF131
I bring to my quilting the inages in my mind of Mexican art & crafts.
AddNotesF132
I had an aunt, Olivia, in the little town where we spent our summers, Villa de Santiago. My aunt would sit at the door of their general store piecing scraps, squares of brilliant color fabric. I loved to see her work.
