A Multimedia presentation of my journey as a quilt designer and quilter. I love the ability to combine my love of art and color with my science and math background. Quilting gives me that chance.

Katie Pedersen Lecture & Trunk Show

Katie Pedersen Lecture & Trunk Show

Please join The South Florida Modern Quilt Guild in hosting Katie Pedersen, Seattle modern quilting instructor and author of Quilting Modern for a trunk show. Katie enjoys teaching others her approach in merging improvisational quilting techniques with modern and traditional design in her West Seattle studio and nationally.

She believes that making something by hand sets each of us on a journey to discovering who we are as artists, and that this personal process can start with simply sewing two pieces of fabric together. She loves that quilts are utilitarian works of art that showcase the evolution of one's creative confidence and developing aesthetic.

Her greatest wish is that she could sew as fast as the ideas come.
