My Bio

 

Laura Wasilowski is both contemporary quilt maker and creator of hand-dyed fabrics and threads. Her pictorial art quilts, made from fused fabrics and machine quilted, are collected and exhibited internationally. 

 

Wasilowski’s narrative quilts begin with her unique hand-dyed fabrics and are inspired by stories of family, friends, and home. The whimsical wall pieces often chronicle her life.

 

Owner of the dye shop, Artfabrik, Laura is also a lecturer, surface designer, quilt instructor, and author of Fusing Fun and Fuse-and-Tell.

  • Garden Inspiration

    It is gardening time in my backyard and we are busy planting exotic things like radishes and tomatoes.

    My annual and perennial flowers are also in bloom. The lovely colors and shapes of flowers inspire so many of my quilts. Here is an example of some of my favorites, poppies, translated into fabric.
