April 15, 2021 – Kathy Cook
Have you seen all the temperature quilts popping up on social media? Temperature quilts are becoming more popular every year. But what exactly is a temperature quilt?
Her quilts are mostly improv and she uses solid fabric to create them. She enjoys exploring negative space and using bold colors in her work. Inspiration often comes from architecture and shapes she sees in nature. The freedom of expression she finds in using fabric keeps her endlessly occupied!
