No Swan Song

I have been quilting and making art all my life. While most of my friends wanted to be nurses and vets I wanted to be an artist and a missionary. During the late 80's I started my own quilting business and hired out from the local quilt shop, Quilters Hive. It was called Needle and Crown; "I pray that, risen from the dead, I may in glory stand - a crown perhaps upon my head but a needle in my hand." Above is a banner that I designed rather successfully. It employs a technique called curved patchwork similar to "Drunkard's Path."
It is not easy to make a living as an artist but I have a book that recommends charging $20 per square foot of quilt. I made more money as a sales consultant for the Longaberger Company.
