About the Artist

Quilting: How else can you create beauty by cutting up fabric into small pieces, mixing them up and
sewing them back together?
My quilts are all original designs.
For the Denman Xmas Fair, I am offering wall hangings. They include several techniques: foundation
piecing, appliquḗ and mola (reverse appliquḗ). They are hand embroidered then quilted by machine.
Contact me at wboothroyd@yahoo.ca. I accept e transfers.
