Frieda Anderson

Fall Paducah 2019

frieda-andersonA BERNINA Ambassador, Frieda Anderson has been making quilts for over 40 years. Her original quilts are inspired by colors from nature and the everyday scenery that surrounds her Midwest home.

After discovering the art of hand dyeing fabric 20 years ago, Frieda now works almost exclusively with her own hand-dyed cottons and silks in her fused and pieced quilt creations. She loves the dyeing process and particularly enjoys seeing the colors emerge from the wet fabric. Frieda has been designing and making original quilts since she made her first quilt in high school, and she enjoys the challenge every step of quiltmaking offers — from beginning to end. Daily walks in the woods with her dog are Frieda’s inspiration for the hand-dyed fabric and original patterns found on her website at
