Featuring: Grace Errea

Posts On: July 29, 2013


The quilt world gained a valuable asset when Grace Errea made the transition from high-level corporate executive to full-time textile artist, designer, author, and teacher. After sharing striking examples of her "value based" contemporary-realistic work, Grace shows and explains an eight-value fabric chart, oversees an impromptu workshop involving the studio audience, and reveals the materials and methods she uses to create and build the patterns for her quilts. All this, plus Alex demos a lightweight, snuggly receiving blanket that features the surprising combination of flannel and voile.
