Artist Name


Grandma Ryker in Clever, Missouri made a lot of quilts throughout her life. I remember sleeping underneath them on cold Missouri nights. She had so many designs. I did happen to get 3 of her quilts before she passed and I treasure them dearly. One of them is only the top and it was put together by her and my great-grandmother by "hand" only. To see the fabric designs they used in the wedding ring quilt is awesome. My mother, Edna Ryker, taught me how to sew when I was in grade school and she even had me take sewing lessons by Singer, when I was 10 years old. Of course, throughout Jr High and High School, Home Economics sewing class was a must. It wasn't until about 2 years ago, my friend got me hooked in making quilts. It surely is a way to express yourself with design and color. Topping on the cake is when you give the quilt to someone and they truly love it. I'm working on my 10th and 11th quilt. They will be a gift to a family member ... surprising them. :) Most of my ideas have come from Missouri Quilt Company. I love their tutorials; easy, simple and of course, they have their daily deals. ♥ Also, my Mom would love my collection of fabric. :)
