Ann Fahl and I met many years ago at a group we both belonged to, PAQA. Over the years we have become friends and on several occasions have been teaching roommates, as we will be this week at the NC Quilt Symposium in Raleigh NC.
Ann and I also share a love of nature, particularly flowers and animals.
Ann Fahl, prize winning quilter of Racine, WI has exhibited her quilts in competitions, solo and invitational shows in the United States, France and Japan. Her work is included in the collections of Northwestern Mutual Insurance Co., Neiman Marcus, Quilts Inc., and Ripon College. She also lectures and gives workshops in the US. Her book is titled Coloring with Thread. In 2007 a DVD was published based on the book. Spring 2010 her book on free-motion quilting was released, Dancing with Thread. A Black and White Tale is her newest book about her quilts about the life of Oreo the cat. Many of her quilts and articles can be found in quilting publications worldwide. Ann has a line of patterns based on her original designs. She can be seen on thequiltshow.com. Visit Ann’s gallery online at http://www.annfahl.com/.
One of my favorite quilts by Ann is – George’s Garden
If you ever get a chance to take a workshop with her you will be truly delighted.
