Karen Stone – Karen Stone Quilts
A quilter since 1986, Karen’s inspiration manifests equally of innovation and tradition. Her quilts have won numerous awards, including first prizes in international competitions, and her designs appear frequently in exhibition. Her Clam Session quilt received the Master of Innovative Artistry award at IQA in 2009, and her Indian Orange Peel Quilt was People’s Choice at Quilt National ’95 and is now part of the QN collection at the International Quilt Museum.
Her Sacred quilt was Best of Show in Dallas in 2020, and with two other pieces, juried into QuiltCon 2022. Having enjoyed success in design, publication and teaching, she continues to reinvent herself in new work. Karen holds degrees in Piano from Baylor and Indiana Universities, has two beautiful daughters, two exemplary cats, and rides her bike from historic Deep Ellum in Dallas, TX.
