About the author (2005)

Colleen's background is in science and engineering, and her quilts reflect that in their strong graphic quality. Creating designs and solving problems are her favorite parts of the process; cutting, sewing, and pressing are just the means to the end. She loves to play with illusions in her quilts, creating three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface. Her quilts have won prizes in national and international shows as well as being exhibited at Quilt National 2001. Colleen teaches, lectures, and exhibits her work throughout the United States and internationally.
