I believe that quilts carry both collective and individual memory and connect generations. We connect to the past through the craft of making and to the future through the production of heirloom items.
There is also a persistent quality of quilts that involves community. A community of gathering, gifting, teaching, passing along tradition. North Minneapolis has been my home for 10 years and NoMi is the shorthand name for our community. This neighborhood has shaped me in innumerable ways and making vibrant quilts within this community is important to me.
I am inspired by my travels, by nature and by the generations of quilters that came before me. I am proud to make simply designed but densely patterned and spirited quilts.
