Teaching in her Seattle studio and nationally, Katie merges improvisational techniques with modern and traditional quilting designs to create unique pieces. She is the co-author of “Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts,” and is a past president and founding member of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild.
Katie believes that making something by hand takes each of us on a journey of discovering who we are as artists, and that this personal process starts simply by sewing two pieces of fabric together. She loves that quilts are utilitarian works of art that showcase the evolution of one’s creative confidence and developing aesthetic, be it modern or traditional. Her greatest wish is that she could sew as fast as the ideas come! For inspiration, workshops, and open studio dates, you can visit Katie at sewkatiedid.com.
