About the author (2006)

Freddy has been involved with art since her college days and designed and taught needlepoint but didn't get involved in quilting until her five sons were grown and had homes of their own. Now she's busy making up for lost a big way! Freddy's unbridled love of color is her eye, red is a neutral! Her quilts have appeared in national and international publications and she was featured by HGTV as one of six artists for their "Artists in Residence" special.
