Who is Suzanne Marshall?
Suzanne Marshall taught herself to quilt from a library book in the late 70’s because her four children needed covers on their beds. As you can tell from her quilts, Suzanne has a fascination with nature, folk art, and images from ancient times. Suzanne has chosen to make her quilts by hand, a process that she finds meditative using her own techniques. For example, she quilts without a frame or a hoop.
Suzanne’s quilts have won numerous awards including: One of the Twentieth Century’s 100 Best American Quilts Ten awards at the American Quilter’s Society show in Paducah, including the Gingher Award (a $10,000 prize for best hand workmanship and the Timeless Treasures Award (a $12,000 prize for best hand workmanship).
