The QuiltToonist is a log of of the fiber art I create out of the memories and commentary I just seem to have the need to express. These ideas are told with fabric and thread through the making of small fiber art quilts – QuiltToonsTM -everything ranging from politics to memories spent with grandchildren. Because I am self-taught I consider myself a folk artist. I did learn to sew in 4-H many moons ago in rural Central Kansas; but I have no training in art. This blog is a way of having the creative work “shown.” And hopefully adding to the purpose and meaning of my life. My professional career was, in general, communications. At various times, I was a local television reporter, a talk show host, a public relations specialist, and, my last employment was as the coordinator of a program that supported grandparents and other relatives who were rearing relatives’ children. I have a Master’s Degree in Communications from Bowling Green State University. I have one husband, four children, eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, one cat and two dogs.
