About the Artist

Chris Zurbuchen is enjoying her retirement years in Yellow Springs, OH, with gardening, bicycling, traveling, and sewing.  Her mother taught her to sew and that was reinforced with 4-H in high school.  She made her wedding dress and her attendants’ dresses.  Work life took over the little time for sewing until retirement.  A Miami Valley Quilt Network show at the Dayton Metro Library, introduced Chris to this art form.  She took her first traditional quilt class in April 2014.  A Christmas gift of a new Singer sewing machine from her daughter and joining MVAQN study group started Chris on learning to make art quilts.

Artist’s Statement

I am an art quilt newbie.  I’m still learning the basic techniques such fusing, satin stitching or painting fabrics. The joy of playing with fabric, translating an idea into a finished project, is my reward.
