Deborah is an ordinary, everyday, in love with textiles quilter who loves non-traditional design. Lately her journey gravitates toward simple shapes and quickly completed projects—a sort of “side trip” on the quilting highway. As they say, it’s not the destination, but the pleasure of the (fabric) journey in traveling there.
