Quilting has come a long way

I think back to when I began quilting over twenty years ago and how it was pretty much a needle, thread, thimble, a hoop of sandwiched fabrics and me. More recently there has been this fantastic cross over between artist genres; fiber, painting, photography, paper, etc. It seems there is no limit to what today’s quilters and fiber artists will try and I’m enjoying every minute of it!

Painted hands, beginnings of a whole cloth

By Ann Scott

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.
