I call myself the "Wackydoodle Quilter" due to my easy-going, whimsical style. In quilting I don't always follow the rules and tend to ignore the "Quilting Police“. My work gravitates towards animals, nature scenes, and bright colors. My techniques include and blend: fabric collage, free form art quilts, raw-edge applique, as well as many others. I Have a passion for entering quilt challenges. These spark my imagination and inspire me. I have been quilting since 1993, and have received awards and recognitions for my quilts in various shows and the California State Fair. I was chosen as the "Featured Artist" at the River City Quilters' Guild 2018 show "Window of Imagination" because of my creativity as a quilter.
It is my dream to inspire you to have fun and learn what you can create.

Learn how to create freezer paper foundations for precision piecing. This technique is similar to paper piecing but foundations are reusable and there is no tearing out bits of paper afterwards! We will use the Diamonds quilt to learn the technique and achieve precise points. We will discuss how to apply it to many other patterns. In this class we will also look at the use of value and color to create visually complex quilts from the repetition of a simple block [Tara is known for her creative use of color and placement].
Use solids or prints - although the sample is in solids, it works great in prints!
This is a unique opportunity for our guild. Don’t miss out!
