Rachel is an art quilter living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her work has featured in invitational and juried gallery shows and fine art/craft shows throughout the country.

Primarily using hand dyed or painted cottons, silks and nonwovens, but also having a love of Asian fabrics and kimono silks, Rachel incorporates these ancient traditional fabrics into her compositions. The use of sheers, couching and fabric paints gives her work a sense of depth and texture.  Slightly curving lines portray gracefulness and curves are often present representing wholeness and creativity.

In this PowerPoint lecture Rachel will demonstrate the idea that quilts do not need to be complex to be compelling.  Rachel will share her thoughts on how to choose great fabrics and simple designs to create amazing quilts, She will show some work from artists who have inspired her and also speak about how her background has informed her work.

Our mission is to preserve and promote the art of quilt making, stimulate interest through educating members and the public, and engage in projects for the community where needed and appropriate.
