Ann S. Lainhart
Ann considers herself to be a contemporary traditionalist when it comes to quilting. By this she means that much of her work is based on traditional quilt blocks such as Card Trick, Mariner’s Compass, and Eight-Pointed Star. But by using hand-dyed fabrics, border prints, and fussy-cutting, her quilts have a somewhat contemporary feel. Ann has been quilting for more than 30 years and teaching for more than 25 years. While living in Boston, she was a member of the Proper Bostonian Quilters. She joined the Common Threads Quilt Guild in Topsfield, Massachusetts when she moved to Peabody, Massachusetts. She is currently a member of the East Coast Quilters Alliance and the American Quilter’s Society. Ann also belongs to the Plymouth Guild for the Arts, and her wallhangings are in the guild’s galleries. Ann’s quilts have been displayed in the Vermont Quilt Festival (a third place ribbon); the New England Images shows; and the East Coast Quilters Alliance —“A Quilter’s Gathering” where she won a blue ribbon on a bargello jacket in 1998 and a white ribbon for hand quilting in 2001. She enjoys working with people to make commissioned wallhangings that fit their space and color scheme. Ann also presents slide shows, trunk shows, and workshops to quilt guilds and other groups.
