Welcome to Bent Twig Quilts!

Grandma's LegacyWelcome to Bent Twig Quilts! My art quilting is a continuing journey as I explore, learn, and practice my passion for creating with fabric.

I hope you enjoy looking at the art quilts in my gallery. Please check back often to see new projects and related information!
