Fiber Arts

Jeanann has always loved crafting and once “I made a quilt I was hooked”. Her maternal grandmother taught her to sew and inspired her, as did/does her mother, Jean Murphy, another favorite BBTCAC fiber artist. She describes herself as a “self-taught quilter” who has been making quilts for about eight years.

Jeanann uses 100% cotton fabrics, and cotton and cotton/poly blend batting that is purchased locally and on line shops. In her home studio, where she works “all times of the day”, her quilts are produced “from a couple of days to several months.” She uses a combination of ideas from old historical patterns, nature, architecture and tiling in the construction of her quilts.
