AuthorAbout the Author

Louisa was born in Indonesia and educated in the Netherlands, and she came to the United States in 1960. Although her 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 her to "paint" with fabrics. She enjoys collaborating on new designs with her daughter, Lisa, a graphic artist who shares her mother's love of quilting. Louisa resides in Loveland, Colorado, with her husband and mother.
