An interview with me in Why Quilts Matter

A few months ago, I wrote a post about the reception of my quilt "Self-Portrait, Year 2: Beneath the Surface" at QuiltCon.  I also received two requests for interviews, which are now being published.  The first out is an interview by Bill Volckening in Why Quilts Matter.  The interview is long, so it has been divided in two parts.  You can read Part 1 here.  Part 2 will be published in June: now available here.

I am honored and humbled that Bill found my quilt and its story worthy of an interview.  Bill is a distinguished collector of quilts and writes extensively about quilts on his blog and on Facebook--do check out his website:

Thank you Bill!


  1. I just read the article in the magazine. Although it is sad I can't help not to think because of the bold letters that perhaps texting and cell phone was part of the story.

  2. For me, no, that wasn't part of the story. But the work can speak to others in different ways, and I can see that such an association might add to the meaning for someone else.
