Katie Pasquini Masopust - Katiepm
For nearly 30 years Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality contemporary art quilts that have been coveted and collected by a broad range of admirers. From her early beginnings as a painter dabbling in traditional quilt making, her work has evolved from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to very painterly landscapes and abstracts executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques.
A prolific author, Katie shares her enthusiasm for the art of creative quilting through her numerous books, her many classes, and now as host of Katie’s  Alegre RetreatsAs busy as she is, her love of the art and support of her family give her tireless energy. She will share with us her journey as a quilt artist.
