Karen Griska's Profile
Quiltmaking has been my passion since I was 13 years old. Following a career as an investment portfolio manager and raising two sons, I now enjoy creating quilts full time. I'm inspired by antique quilts, especially ones that contain improvisational elements in their design or construction. I also enjoy the challenge of upcycling, and wrote the book "Quilts from the Selvage Edge" on that topic. (Published by the American Quilter's Society, 2008.) I'm a member of the Empire Quilter's Guild in New York City, and the Modern Connecticut Quilter's Guild.
