Design Concept

In many of my quilts during the last ten years, birds have represented the ultimate feeling of freedom that I imagine birds must have as they are soaring across the sky.

In June of 1997, after 28 years as a flight attendant for United Airlines, I retired to pursue my career as a professional quilt artist full time. This quilt represents my taking leave of the corporation to fly solo in my own career.
