An Obsession for Fabric
David Taylor’s obsession with fabric began at an early age, salvaging tiny scraps from his mother’s sewing area trash bin. This began his love and appreciation for fabric, though not a love for quilting. After college, David embarked on a career in graphic design (before computers!), primarily working for newspapers for 20 years. David’s first quilt design was in 1999, a fundraiser quilt collaboration. Following a visit to Houston in 2001 for Quilt Festival, David’s obsession with fabric turned into an obsession for quilting as art. In 2006, David discovered a love for hand-applique, and all of his works since then have been stitched together by hand. Now, a decade into his quilting journey, he has exhibited his work internationally and teaches at numerous venues throughout the year. He is now a full-time quilt teacher and speaker living in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
