Statement

Being a part of the quiltart list has encouraged me to break out of the box in quilting. I’ve participated in the Journal Quilt Project and a few of the challenges. During one of the challenges, someone gave us a source for buying colored staples! I never would have considered using staples on my quilts before.  I now have 400 colored staples in my stash! On a personal note, this quilt also celebrates my son who is pushing boundaries and educating me.
