Photo Since taking up the art of quilting in 1989, Ruth has gained national recognition for her award winning quilt design and workmanship. Her works hang in private collections from coast to coast.

Early successes in competition resulted in requests for her designs and in 1994 her quilt pattern company INNOVATIONS was born. INNOVATIONS strives to fill the need for artistic designs that are easy for anyone to create.

While the company and related travel to teach and lecture nationally and internationally takes up much of her time, Ruth makes the time to continue to create the art quilts that are her real focus. She particularly enjoys intricately pieced pictorial work, often inspired by nature.

Ruth is a member of the International Quilt Association, the American Quilter’s Society, Studio Art Quilter’s Association, Quilt Visions, The Kansas Art Quilters and The Kaw Valley Quilters Guild.

Please visit the gallery to see the fruits of her labor. Most pieces are for sale and inquiries are welcome. If you have never enjoyed the softness and warmth that quilted art can bring to your walls, perhaps now is the time to consider it. All pieces are ready to hang and enjoy!


This quilt was a commission piece, inspired by "Coreopsis" which can be seen in the Small Quilts Gallery.
