Rita Hutchens' Profile
Quilt Artist, Author and International Quilt teacher.
Rita is an expert at imagining and creating colorful patterns and loves to explore the endless design possibilities and construction options available by using strips which are sewn into tubes.
Since 1980 she has been fine tuning her design and patterning skills while developing her technique. Rita is process oriented and works intuitively with lots of experimentation and mistakes. She prefers to think of her mistakes as intuitive decisions.
Rita strives to raise the awareness of quilting as an art form and has received a Visual Arts Fellowship from the Idaho Commission of the Arts: 2006. She is the author of the book “Totally Tubular Quilts”: 2003 and has been featured in an episode of Simply Quilts: 2004…
