These one-of-a-kind quilts are a collaborative process between the artist and a select group of dedicated women who maintain the increasingly rare tradition of hand-quilting.
Each quilt is designed and constructed by the artist to function both as a work of art and a working quilt. Production of a quilt takes anywhere from three to six months to complete.

The undulating landscape of the rural Midwest supplies fertile design and color inspiration. Befitting the artist's own German heritage, the quilts are anchored in the region's agricultural work ethic.
For I love forms beyond my own and regret the borders between us.
