For over 30 years, Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality contemporary art quilts that have been collected by a broad range of admirers. From her early beginnings as a painter dabbling in traditional quilt making, her work has evolved from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to very painterly landscapes executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques.
A prolific author, Katie shares her enthusiasm for the art of creative quilting through her numerous books, classes, and now as Executive Director of Alegre Retreat held at Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado — a destination resort for quilting enthusiasts and fiber artists.
