Gallery - November 2008 - Lauren Dieterich

Lauren Dieterich was first drawn to quilting because she loved the geometry of traditional quilt blocks. She pieced her first quilt block in 1995, and has been an ardent quilter ever since. Lauren invests much of her quilting time in color and fabric selection. Her favorite part of the quilt-making process is machine piecing, although recently, Lauren has enjoyed experimenting with paper piecing and machine appliqué. One of her quilts, Indian Summer, won an Honorable Mention ribbon in the 2004 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, and was featured in the May 2005 issue of Quilter’s Newsletter. Lauren lives in Manhattan with her husband and her Beagle “Flash,” who is quite the helper.
