David will relate, through a digital slide show, how he creates his art quilts that look more like paintings.  From his unique pattern-drawing method, to fabric selection, quilting and binding,  his entire process is covered.  

A natural storyteller, David will keep you enraptured during this technique lecture with his humorous yet amazing anecdotes.  Questions are welcomed throughout the presentation.

About David Taylor

David Taylor currently lives in Fort Collins, Colorado.  His obsession with fabric began at an early age, salvaging tiny scraps from his mother's sewing area trash bin.  He started creating on her sewing machine by age 10.  After collage, he began a 30+ year career in graphic design.  His first quilt design was in 1999,collaborating on a fundraiser project for Strings Music Festival in Steamboat Springs, CO, with friend Madeleine Vail.  Madeleine encouraged him to keep after it.  In 2009, he left his job at an advertising agency, started teaching applique and quilting, and never looked back.  His teaching adventures have takin him around the globe, and his quilted artworks hang in numerous private collections. 

David Taylor is a two-time recipient of the Master Award for Contemporary Quilting from the International Quilt Association (2006,2014), the Brother Wall Machine Workmanship Award from the American Quilters Society (Paducah Quilt Week, 2008), and a two-time Best-of-Show winner at the IQA's Spring Festival in Chicago (2007, 2008)
