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 quiltmaking, her work has evolved from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to painterly landscapes and abstracts executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques.
Katie’s easy, energetic manner has made her a very popular teacher and lecturer. When not in residence at her studio in Fortuna, CA, she travels the world presenting her contemporary quilting theories and techniques to classes; not only in North America, but in Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand. Awards and accolades have been numerous for Katie, culminating with her 2005 induction into a very select group of art quilt professionals who have earned the Silver Star Award presented by Houston Quilt Festival. A prolific author, world-class quilter, and sought-after instructor, Katie shares her enthusiasm for the art of creative quilting through her numerous books and her many classes.
