Chris Swailes

Textiles, quilting

Chris has been quilting for the last 8 years and is hopelessly hooked on producing quilts, play mats, bags, wall art and other quilting related items.

Chris is inspired by what she sees in books and magazines, on the internet, by friends and by people who have commissioned her to produce a particular piece. She then carefully selects

colours, fabric, and design to create the finished piece.  She uses a variety of quilting techniques depending on purpose and what she wants the finished piece to look like. These include foundation piecing, trapunto, and free motion quilting.

Chris mainly creates quilts as gifts for family and friends and delights in the reaction she gets when a quilt is handed over.

This is Chris’s third Art Trail.
