Heather Black first tried quilting in 1995 but didn’t catch the quilting bug until 2011 when she designed, pieced and hand quilted her first queen size quilt. Shortly after that she discovered modern quilting and from that point on Heather has been designing and making quilts whenever possible. Her quilts and patterns have been featured in various quilting publications including Modern Patchwork, Curated Quilts and Simply Modern. She is currently working on a book to be released early 2020 and has quilts in two other books, Modern Quilts for a New Century and Modern Patchwork Home. Heather has had a myriad of quilts displayed at international, national and local quilt shows. Her quilts have hung at International Quilt Festival, Houston and Chicago, AQS Fall QuiltWeek, QuiltCon, MQX Midwest and many more. She won first place use of negative space for her Urban Trek quilt at QuiltCon 2018 and several ribbons in local shows.
Along with quilting Heather is a mom of a beautiful young girl, CoraJoan, and lives in Spokane, WA. She is currently the President of the local Modern Quilt Guild, Inland Northwest MQG.
Heather will be teaching "Modern Drunkard's Path" on Friday
and "Secrets of Modern Half-Rec Triangles, Triangles, and Diamonds" on Saturday.
