KWA - KwiltArt - Kathleen Andrews

Kathleen Andrews Kathleen's Mother and Grandmothers taught her many of the needle arts when she was very young. Almost 20 years ago, her sisters Maureen and Colleen, who had been quilting for years, encouraged her to make a couple of small, traditional style quilts. Quilting really didn't click with Kathleen at the time, until her Mom bought her a watercolor quilt book and a fabric kit for Christmas one year. The quilt artist in her came alive, and she found quilting to be creative and satisfying. Kathleen would not be where she is today without the wonderful encouragement of her sisters and Mom.

KwiltArt has been in business since 1999. Kathleen designs and writes patterns, teaches and lectures. She has been juried several times into the AQS Paducah Show and has also done a half hour segment on Kaye Wood's PBS television show "Kaye's Quilting Friends".

With a new quilt design, Kathleen never has a full vision of what it will look like when finished. She makes pieces and blocks and plays with them on her design wall until there is a good layout. Photos of each layout helps her remember what has been done previously. Katheleen likes designs with depth, dimension and movement. She then figures out the construction logistics, which is sometimes the toughest part trying to convey the exact steps for creation. She strives to have her patterns clear, understandable and easy to use.

Kathleen's mission is to share her artwork and ideas in hopes of inspiring others to explore and open up to their own creative potential. She is available for teaching, click here to view her schedule.
