Guild Meeting: Monday, May 9, 2016
Speaker: Cathy Geier
Program: Patchworks that Praise


Cathy Geier is an award-winning quilter, author, teacher and lecturer who specializes in landscape quilts. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in art history from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and sets up her landscapes with the eye of a painter who uses fabrics for her palette. Her quilts have been juried into national shows, won national and regional ribbons, and have been featured in American Quilter, Quilter’s Newsletter, Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting and Quilt World magazines. She is the author of several articles and a book, Watercolor Landscape Quilts (Krause Publications). Cathy currently owns and manages Patchworks that Praise, an online quilt shop specializing in fabrics for landscape quilting.

Cathy invented and patented a new piecing technique using a tear-away foundation. This technique enables quilters to sew together multiple squares and half square triangles very quickly, easily and (most importantly) accurately. She then went on to adapt the method to sew strip-pieced and string-pieced landscapes.

Cathy is married with three grown children. Her husband’s job with the US Forest Service has taken her family to some of the most scenic places in the country. Her love of the forests, mountains and lakes around her is reflected in her quilts.
