Cindy Grisdela is an award-winning fiber artist with over 30 years of experience creating eye-catching quilts. Fascinated with color, Cindy likes to use fabric the way a painter might use paint, and draws inspiration for her contemporary quilts every day from the colors and textures she sees outside her studio window overlooking a lake in Reston, Virginia.
Not knowing exactly how a design is going to turn out before she starts is one of Cindy’s favorite parts of the improvisational process - anything can happen, and that's exciting! She encourages her students to embrace the process and let go of the rules to discover their inner creativity.
