Nancy Crow – pioneer of modern quilting

30 Oct

Being newish to quilting, my first started in June 2011, so the names which exist within this huge and varied world are often new to me.

Nancy Crow was mentioned at our local quilt meeting this month.  She has recently been over to the UK with an Exhibition at Alexander Palace and did a talk at the V&A.  I quickly did a search on her to find out more.

Nancy Crow is described as a pioneer of modern quilting.  Visit her site to be inspired.  I really like her use of colour.

I also found a good interview with her on Quilting Daily.

Not much sewing nor my great anticipation surrounding hand dyeing some fabric is happening here – half term break, and a break from routine for all of us.
