Cathy franks

Our guild had Cathy Franks as a guest speaker. She shared many tips and technique ideas with us. Her quilts were stunning and she was funny. She is definitely a more modern art quilter than I am, using paints and embellishments in her designs.

I am part of the quilting crowd that sees quilts as bed coverings, probably because I don't have display space. I am not an artist and am not trying to realize a vision in my quilt. I just want to piece and smile and maybe comfort someone else with a cozy quilty hug. So I am overwhelmed with "art " quilts.
I still think I am an artist with fabric and a sewing machine and so are so many talented quilters that will never win ribbons and fame.  sigh....

But she was funny....

  1. Those are some gorgeous quilts. I'm with you, as much as I enjoy seeing art quilts, I prefer to piece the more traditional.
