Bio: I am a Traditional Quilter. I love Needleturn Applique (freezer paper and back basting methods) Hand Quilting, and Long Arm Quilting and Piecing. The majority of my quilts are made to enter in judged Quilt Shows. I constantly look for new techniques and challenges in my quilting journey. After working 38 years for the Federal Government, retirement is great! I am a 6th generation niece of Frederic Chopin. My ggggrandparents came to the US directly from France in 1830-1840's. My Mother was an accomplished Pianist and taught music in the South Texas area for many years between 1930 and 1950. Piano lessons began for me at the age of 6. I play the piano and have a perfect pitch (guess that is from the Chopin line). I love Classical music and "the real Country and Western" genre.

  1. Love your Brinton Hall Medallion quilt and the use of “Japanese” design fabric. Could you share with me the size of the hexagons you used? I would love to make one for myself using my Asian fabric collection.

    • Sorry about being late in responding. The size of the hexagons are 1″. The pattern is in Quiltmaia # 107 and 108 – Called Brinton Hall. A reproduction quilt made in the 1800’s.
      Thx for asking.
