We kick off 2022 with Cindy Grisdela, from Reston, Virginia, an an award-winning fiber artist with over 30 years’ experience creating eye-catching quilts. She specializes in improv piecing and design and using color fearlessly.

According to her website, Cindy comes from a long line of women who have expressed themselves using a needle and thread, although curiously there weren’t any quilters in her family. Creating with various forms of fabric and thread has been a part of her life since childhood, and she is self-taught as a fiber artist, with lots of experimentation along the way. Cindy is the author of Artful Improv and a new book, Adventures in Improv Quilts, published in September 2021.

Cindy will also be doing two workshops for KCMQG: Improv Puzzle Blocks and Artful Improv (pictured above).

This is a hybrid meeting and can be attended in person or online via Zoom.
