Sew Colorful

I enjoyed the spring 2018 Bulletin, including “Needle and Thread,” about a quilter.

My mother, Ann Stoddard Sielman ’57; sister, Becky Sielman ’85; and I all quilt. Here’s the quilt Becky designed and made (with her daughter, Mary Kuchenbrod ’16) as a graduation gift for her son, Charles Kuchenbrod ’18.

Appropriately for his major, all the designs reference mathematics. (It’s also featured in my book, Art Quilts International: Abstract & Geometric.)

I run Studio Art Quilt Associates Inc., which has 3,500 members in 39 countries, and will publish my sixth book, Art Quilts Unfolding: 50 Years of Innovation, this fall.

Our lives need more color—and quilts!
