Fiber art is a platform for sharing my views, innermost thoughts and dreams with the world. Straighten Up and Fly Right was a saying I heard as a child and when uttered it meant you need to get yourself together! Where choices are concerned it’s either black or white – no shades of gray and the process is supported by love.

The numbers 711 have made memorable appearances in my life to where now I see a correlation to the “Straighten Up and Fly Right” quilt. Both are about making a choice between right and wrong. The bible verses that relate to both are: Romans 2: 7-11

I am a daughter and wife. I am a woman and child of God. I am a quilter and fiber artist.”
