QOF Episode 116 - Karin King
Karen King loves the modern quilt aesthetic and has a particular fondness for foundation paper piecing. She has had quilts juried into Quilt Con 2022 and 2023, the largest annual show of modern quilts in the world.Her studio has grown to include a long arm machine and two resident feline supervisors, plus occasional foster kittens. Just for fun, Karen's favorite color is all of them, but she admits to a smaller stash of yellow, which I couldn't believe when I read that because my favorite colour is yellow. But cooking and music, especially from the band U2, and travel everywhere, especially if U2 is playing there, are also a big part of her life. Beyond quilting, Karen enjoys sharing her knowledge and expertise with a number of different organizations on a volunteer basis. Currently she serves on the board of the Modern Quilt Guild, the Calgary Folk Festival, and the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew.Visiting Calgary for the Festival of Quilts at Heritage Park?
