The journey of quilting led registered nurse Laura Heine to open Fiberworks, her quilt shop in Billings, Montana. What started as making “just one” quilt grew into a true passion for the art of quiltmaking. Since then, Laura has designed over 50 different lines of fabrics, created her own collection of threads, and begun her current obsession: making collage quilts that showcase fused appliqué, cut flower motifs, and the use of impressionistic color and value to create one-of-a-kind quilts. Laura’s work has been published in many magazines, and her book, Color Fusion: Fiberworks by Laura Heine, documents her quilting journey. Laura has won many awards, the most prestigious being the $10,000 BERNINA Award for Best Machine Workmanship from AQS. Visit Laura’s shop at fiberworks-heine.com.
