About Kristin Miller

Kristin Miller I want my quilts to startle and delight, to wake you up, not put you to sleep, even though many of my art quilts are actually full-sized bed quilts. Art to sleep under!
I like colours that clash, patterns that dissolve into abstraction, fabrics that dont go together. I constantly strive for a sense of immediacy and of energetic motion in my work, and try to stretch my creative borders beyond safe and traditional bounds.
I like to work quickly even haphazardly - reacting to shapes and ideas as they appear. Making a pattern or planning ahead goes against my basic nature. Nevertheless, I often have to draw out designs and make up patterns in my custom work, and Im reluctantly realizing that this is a way to expand my artistic boundaries,
Whether Im taking a walk or making a quilt, I like to explore and maybe even get lost for a while. So I am always off on a tangent as my quiltmaking meanders in unexpected directions.
The quilting stitches are very important to me. I do both hand and machine quilting. Quilting by machine is a job, something to be accomplished quickly and competently. Quilting by hand is a slow and meditative process that etches an added layer of beauty and meaning into the quilt.
