Mathematics --
I can't separate mathematics and quilting. One of my earliest quilts is The Mathematics Quilt, which embodies a variety of mathematical concepts.

Here are some of the mathematical ideas to be found in other quilts that I have created.

I began quilting in the early 1980s when I was working on dollhouse miniatures. Many of my quilts are in inch-to-the-foot scale -- where, for example, an 8-inch quilt is a mini version of an 8-foot quilt -- some are in half-inch scale, and some quilts have small quilts attached to them.
