I joined QuiltArt at the beginning of my journey into art quilting, and it has provided me with knowledge and encouragement all these years. "Fifteen" tells the story of my evolution --- from traditional piece work with commercial batiks, to stamping on commercial batiks, to dyeing my own fabrics, to painting my own fabrics, to my current fascination with painting on canvas. It includes sections that are representative of each of these milestones, and QuiltArt has been there with me through each of them.
