Scott Murkin

Spring Paducah 2019

Scott Murkin, MD, is a hospice physician from North Carolina. Originally from a quilting family in Illinois, he currently designs original quilts for the bed and wall. Most of his quilts have visual links to the quilting tradition—some obvious, some less so. The quilting is integral to his designs; he loves selecting and/or designing the motifs that will work perfectly to bring each quilt top to life. Scott exhibits nationally and internationally, has his textile artworks in prestigious public and private collections, and has had his quilts appear in numerous publications including American Quilter, Quilters Newsletter, Quiltmaker, Quilting Quarterly and Great American Quilts. Scott is an NQA Certified Quilt Judge who loves being up close and personal with the quilts on judging day. He has judged throughout the country, including for the American Quilter’s Society, the National Quilt Association, and the International Quilt Association. Scott’s motto is “If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right!” See many of Scott’s quilts on his flickr site at flickr.com/photos/scottmurkin.
