Cindy Grisdela



Cindy creates abstract designs in fabric with a focus on color and line. Her work is designed without a preconceived pattern, a little bit like jazz music, where each decision about color and shape influences the next. The color is the first step. Putting colors together intuitively, she uses fabric the way a painter might use paint to create graphic compositions that engage the viewer from a distance yet invite a closer look. The texture is the second step. The stitching lines provide contrast and dimension to the piece, integrating the elements into a cohesive whole. Cindy is the author of Artful Improv and Adventures in Improv Quilts, both books about creating original quilts without patterns.

Live quilting demo Sunday afternoon at 3pm (depending on space and what others at the Atelier are planning)
