“The “Art” Quilts of Katie Fowler “

The “Art” Quilts of Katie Fowler from TheQuiltShow
 
Katie Fowler writes about her quilting, “I made my first quilt in 1996. I quickly accepted my disinterest in and inability to follow directions and began making “art” quilts as a result. I am about having fun, letting go of rules and finding joy in the creative process. I believe creativity is about connection: to self, to others, and to a higher creativity.” Here she shares some of those “art” quilts.
