ABOUT KATHY KENNEDY QUILTS

Artist's Statement

I have enjoyed working with colorful fabrics since my mother taught me to sew when I was around 10 or 11 years old. I have been sewing all my life but always wanted to make quilts. We didn't have many old family quilts, but I have always been drawn to them, amazed by the tiny hand stitches, imagining what the quilter was thinking or experiencing as she stitched.


I made a bed size quilt on my home sewing machine many years ago and realized how time consuming this hobby was. Being a working mother with two children, I told myself that when I was retired I would make quilts! After I retired I made several quilts for friends and family and have begun to sell quilts as well as take on commission work.  I also create quilts using my husband, artist Ira Kennedy's fabric panels.


Creating art quilts is perhaps my number one favorite method of working with fabrics.  I use a variety of methods, including fabric collage.  

 
 

MY QUILTS

I make One Block Wonder quilts with my husband Ira Kennedy's fabric panels.  These are not for sale but I can make one just for you!  You can view all of my quilts from the menu above - Bed and Throw Size and Art Quilts.  Quilts for sale are marked "For Sale."  I also take commissions - I will work with you to create the perfect quilt for you!  If you wish to purchase one of my quilts available for sale, or discuss a quilt you would like made especially for you, please use the "Contact Me" form below.  Thanks for your interest!  

NOTE:  All sizes for quilts are approximate; all art quilts have a hanger on the back, unless mounted on canvas.   If you wish to see a quilt in person or more photos, please contact me.
