Erin Wilson's hand dyed quilts have a strong architectural sensibility; precise and delicate. Erin Wilson is based in Brooklyn, NY.
Meg Callahan is the founder of M. Callahan studio, focusing on patchwork quilting. Each piece is made to order with a keen sense of craftsmanship and experimentation.
Rachel Hayes' installation based work is a fresh take on quilting. Rachel is currently an artist -in- residence at the Tulsa Artist Fellowship, George Kaiser Family Foundation.
Lindsay Stead's work focuses on subtle colors and clean geometry. Based in Toronto, Canada, Lindsay has been making quilt based work for a decade.
A few weeks ago, I was honored to be one of six judges for the Dorothy Waxman International Textile Design Prize. Thank you Philip Fimmano for inviting me to take part in this very special evening!
