KAREN KUSKE - MEMBER
I started quilting in 2000, after taking a beginners’ quilting class and loved it. Since then, I’ve been hooked. My fabric stash fills many cupboards in my quilt studio, along with an extensive quilt book library.
While living aboard, I started designing the Chesapeake Bay lighthouse patterns. As you can see, the lighthouses are my specialty. They are special to me because of my many years of boating which started in the mid 1970’s. The lighthouses are an important part of navigation.
In mid 2000’s after moving to CO, I started my quilting business, which at first, was longarm quilting, then it progressed into some custom made quilts and publishing my patterns. Now, my business includes designing / publishing patterns and designing / making custom quilts by request.
I’m so thankful for God blessing me with so many opportunities and combining my God given talent to create art out of fabric.
She will do a trunk show of her lighthouse and Smokey Mt. Designs among many others. There are no classes scheduled since it is July 4th week.
