About the Artist

The straight lines and strict patterns were Chris’s initial entry into the quilt world. The journey from tiny calicos to infinite fabric choices has been thrilling. Dropping the rules and adding creativity has opened doors providing enough inspiration until the time comes to pass her stash off to another generation of quilters.

Chris and her husband live on three glorious acres in rural Montgomery County. One Springer Spaniel and two cats round out the household. Moving from city to country has provided Chris the opportunity to renew her connection with the earth. Happy dogs and sassy cats are a constant reminder of the joy of spontaneity and serendipity. She is looking to add some of this joy in future quilts.

Stretching the limits of traditional quilting has provided me with infinite possibilities in my work.

Artist’s Statement

The exploration of surface design and texture through the use of the Longarm quilting machine has been an ongoing project. Stretching the limits of traditional quilting has provided me with infinite possibilities in my work.
