    I started out a more traditional quilter, but quickly found art quilts. The fish is from an Alzheimer fund raiser that was auctioned by Aimee Simms a few years ago. My Aunt Rosie died of Alzheimers and she took me fishing in the 1950s. The other picture is a quilt using a picture of me around 3 years old in early 1950s. I got it started in a workshop with Ruth McDowell. I could fall asleep anywhere. The doll is a rag doll with no face that my Mom made for me.

    The fractured abstract-y quilt is really, really interesting.

    I'll have to go look at her technique for this.
    I have her earlier books.

    I think it was mostly her Piecing: Expanding the Basics book. I had tried to do some of the odd shapes in a previous quilt and the workshop helped me with that as well.
