Applique and Pictorial Quilts
Kathy McNeil is an internationally award winning quilt artist, author, pattern designer, teacher and judge. Kathy offers workshops, trunk shows and lectures, On line classes through American Quilters Society and quilting cruises to great destinations with Quilt Seminars at Sea.
Hand appliqueing thousands of little scraps of fabric together, she creates quilts that look like paintings. These wall hangings are inherently and symbolically full of love and comfort. Often using over a hundred different fabrics in one composition, she revels in adding small details and surprises for the viewer to find. The quilting itself adds an additional element of texture to her work. Her quilts are frequently featured in museums, magazines, calendars, and international shows. Many of her quilts are in private collections.
