Current Exhibit:  Quilts by Maryellen Essig

I see fabric as expressions of flowers and color and nature. So when I make a quilt, I am making a garden or creating nature. I have been quilting for over 25 years. I learned how to do everything by hand. Two years and two quilts later I decided to teach myself how to machine piece. It's much faster.

Here are a few of the quilts I have made over the years. They  were quilted by Myself, Paula Rostkowski and Sally Evanshank.
