About this Website
Quilt National Artists is a collaborative site dedicated to spreading the news about art quilts and fiber art. Each artist who participates on this site has been chosen to show in the prestigious biennial Quilt National exhibition.
This website is a labor of love created by two Quilt National artists, Paula Kovarik and Leslie Bixel, who want to build a home for Quilt National artists on the web in order to promote the artwork and connect the artists in the community.
