This year's Featured Artist is Lisa Dunn
My earliest quilting memory is playing under quilt frames while my grandmother and her family and friends hand quilted a quilt. My Grandmother (Geneva Montague Hansen from Payson) encouraged my creativity and taught me to sew. She helped me make my first quilt top when I was 12 years old. When it was time to make my wedding dress, I wanted to incorporate my love of quilts. She helped me figure out how to patch work the skirt.
I live in Spanish Fork with my husband Donald W. Dunn. We have four children and eight grandchildren. I really started quilting with the birth of our first grandchild.
I love the process of creating quilts for special people and occasions. I usually pick a project with someone in mind. My only quilting rule is- “It’s not finished until it has a label!” I have shared my passion for labels by teaching classes for quilt groups. I love and appreciate all kinds of quilting. I have served in different positions and belong to several quilt groups. I love meeting and learning from other quilters. Quilters are awesome people, always willing to share and teach what they know. Quilting is great creative therapy!
