Karen Phillips & Mary Helen Collen:
“Karen began sewing in 7th Grade Home Economics class. At that time, she enjoyed sewing clothes and later her sewing was for her home and family.
For the past 30+ years, her passion has been designing and sewing quilts. She enjoys each step of the quilt making process; design, then color and fabric choice, and finally quilting. The first quilt that she made was a Christmas Tree Skirt and the second was a baby quilt. She continues to make these for the next generations. Karen’s quilting has evolved from “functional” to Art Quilts. As well as from hand quilting to quilting using the sewing machine. Currently, “illusion quilts” interest her; manipulating fabric, design and color to make secondary designs.
Karen is happy to share her quilts with you. Each quilt is a one of a kind piece. Made of 100% cotton in a smoke-free environment.
Karen makes commission pieces. Contact her if that interests you or if you have any questions. ”
