Tina's interest in making art quilts was jump-started by seeing her dear friend Sara take a variety of patterned fabrics, cut them into pieces and combine them in such an artistic way.  As a life-long sewer (having experienced her first sewing triumph with a skating skirt she made in Girl Scouts), she took to quilting quickly. One of the great thrills with this art form is that her options are as infinite as those of a painter working on canvas--landscapes, portraits, geometric patterns, abstract impressions, etc. She enjoys both the deep American roots of traditional quilting and the unlimited possibilities today's art quilts present. Combining elements of both extremes is great fun, as she often uses contemporary fabrics in century-old quilt patterns.

Tina's art quilts have been on display in multiple art shows and quilt shows as well as in national quilt magazines ("Quilters Newsletter" magazine and "Quiltmaker") over 20 times and in three books (including Ricky Tims' "Kool Kaleidoscopes").

In this lecture, Tina shows and shares the stories behind three dozen or so quilts she has made--most are her own designs.
