About the Artist:

Trisha was originally drawn to quilting by the amazing things that happen when two quilt blocks meet: those incredible secondary patterns that make a simple quilt zing. She started quilting in 2002, and found her groove creating up to date quilts from traditional blocks and patterns using all the fabrics, tools and technology the modern world can offer.

Trisha describes herself as a Regionally Famous Quilter with an ever expanding region, a librarian and book geek, copy editor & writer, an ovarian cancer survivor and a rock and roll fan. You can find out more at her website
