Stone, Karen K.
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 exhibitions. 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. Her pieces have been juried into Quilts-Art-Quilts 2022, Quilt National 2023, and won awards in QuiltCon 2022 and 2023. Having enjoyed success in design, publication, and teaching, she continues to reinvent herself in new works. Karen holds degrees in Piano from Baylor and Indiana Universities, has two beautiful daughters, three exemplary cats, and rides her bike from historic Deep Ellum in Dallas, TX. See more at
