About the Author
Laura Wasilowski loves fabric. Her first love was a sweet pink gingham fabric selected for a 4-H sewing project. As a college student, she discovered more exotic fabrics. And while she earned a degree in costume design, she found a new thrill - dyeing. For many years Laura created hand-dyed fabrics for garments that she sold in boutiques across the country. It was a friendly neighbour who introduced Laura to her current flame, the art quilt. This latest love is a marriage of fabric, colour, and whimsy that she truly enjoys. Laura lives in Elgin, IL, where she hand dyes fabric and thread for her business, Artfabrik.
