We would like to introduce you to Faye Labanaris the author of our new book, America’s Quilted Garden Blocks. Faye is known for her award-winning appliqué work and her beautifully executed three-dimensional flowers.
Since 1990, she has taught throughout the United States, including Hawaii, Canada, and Europe, eagerly sharing her knowledge with students of all skill levels. Her humor and the no-stress learning environment she creates ensure that class participants achieve successful results and personal satisfaction.
Her specialties are Baltimore Album appliqué, Hawaiian quilting, and dimensional French ribbon flowers. Her love of Hawaiian quilts and Hawaii led to the development of Quilt Hawaii, a quilt conference held on a different island each year since 1992.
Faye began quilting in 1976 and was twice a state winner in the Great American Quilt Festival’s contests, Memories of Childhood and Discover America. Faye lives in Dover, New Hampshire. She is married and has two grown sons.
