When I retired from full time work in the oil/gas industry 15 years ago, I wanted to pursue my interest in patchwork and quilting.   I love fabric and have a passion for bright colours.  At first I started making quilts for family and friends and then I set up Quirky Quilts as a vehicle to sell quilts.  I now spend my time making custom made quilts for others, art quilts for myself for pleasure and competitions and am a co-convenor of  the Contemporary Quilt Group (part of WA Quilters Association) in Perth, Australia.
