Introduction I am a quilter with a global perspective on needlework. I was born in Indonesia, where the fabulous batiks of the region kindled my lifelong love of fabric. I grew up in the Netherlands, where years of appreciation for the needle arts started. Upon moving to the United States in 1960, I was immediately drawn to quilting and quickly became an accomplished devotee. Although my quilting started with a traditional approach, soon new and exciting designs took over and the traditional gave way to more innovative work. The incredible flexibility that fiber offers, attracted me to “paint” with fabrics. I have developed two new teaching procedures: “Color, Design and Theme” and “Strips ‘n Curves”. The latter is the subject of her first book, published by C&T Publishing, Inc.I now have three books out: Strips ‘n Curves” “A New Twist on Strips ‘n Curves” and “One Patch Plus” written by myself along with my daughter, Lisa Harris.
