David Taylor’s quilts are often mistaken as paintings, and that makes him very happy. His works are adapted from photographs, and his technique evolved from his love of jigsaw puzzles. In this workshop, students will learn the fine points to his craft. Topics include his unique pattern drawing method and freezer paper appliqué technique. A strong emphasis is placed on fabric selection (bring as much as you can to the class) and using those fabrics wisely. Students are required to submit image options in advance of the workshop.
About David Taylor
David Taylor currently lives in Fort Collins, Colorado. His obsession with fabric began at an early age, salvaging tiny scraps from his mother’s sewing area trash bin. He started creating on her sewing machine by age 10. After college, he began a 30-plus-year career in graphic design. His first quilt design was in 1999, collaborating on a fundraiser project for Strings Music Festival in Steamboat Springs, CO, with friend Madeleine Vail. Madeleine encouraged him to keep after it. In 2009 he left his job at an advertising agency, started teaching appliqué and quilting, and never looked back. His teaching adventures have taken him around the globe and his quilted artworks hang in numerous private collections. David Taylor is a two-time recipient of the Master Award for Contemporary Quilting from the International Quilt Association (2006, 2014), the Brother Wall Machine Workmanship Award from the American Quilters Society (Paducah Quilt Week, 2008), and a two-time Best of Show winner at the IQA’s Spring Festival in Chicago (2007, 2008).
