November Meeting -- Saturday, November 9, 2019

Linda Sullivan

Colourwerx Trunk Show

Meeting begins at 10:00am

Presentation begins at 11:00am


It’s no surprise that Linda loves colour and loves creating colourful contemporary quilt designs, patterns and art pieces as well as teaching the art of quiltmaking! 

With over sixteen years experience as professional quiltmaker, Linda is intensely passionate about the art of quiltmaking. Always searching for a twist on traditional quiltmaking, her designs are well known for their whimsical look, adventurous appliqué and fearless use of colour. 

To date, Linda has designed over a hundred quilt patterns - many published in ‘McCall’s Quilting’, ‘Quick Quilts’, ‘American Patchwork & Quilting’, and Quiltmania’s ‘Simply Moderné’ magazine - authored two books and even designed a “Fun and Bright” fabric line for P&B Textiles. 


In 2016, Linda and Carl relocated back to their home state of California and formed Colourwerx - a new design company which mixes their love of ‘pure colour’ with a passion for bold, contemporary design. Today, they enjoy collaborating together on designing patterns and creating quilts, as well as self publishing a line of top selling quilt patterns. They also offer their freelance design services to industry leaders and fabric companies such as Free Spirit Fabrics, Northcott Fabrics and Island Batiks, where many more of their quilt designs can be seen and enjoyed.
