10 Can't-Miss Design Techniques For Art Quilters

  • Bring out your inner artist—explore 10 approaches to designing art quilts with world-renowned teacher Katie Pasquini Masopust.
  • Techniques work for everyone, from beginner to advanced.

 

Author Katie Pasquini MasopustAbout the Author

Fiber artist Katie Pasquini Masopust has traveled throughout the United States and to Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Belgium, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark and England teaching contemporary quilt design. She has changed her style several times over the years. After starting with traditional works, she next turned to creating mandalas, followed by dimensional quilts. She then moved on to landscapes, fracturing them and adding transparencies and color washes. Her most recent work is based on her acrylic paintings. She feels that she has come full circle, returning to her beginnings as a painter, but painting now with fabric. Katie teaches in a relaxed but energizing style, passing her extensive knowledge of design and the art quilt on to her students.

Katie has won many awards throughout her career, including receiving the Silver Star Award at the International Quilt Festival in Houston.
