Cynthia England is a graduate of the Art Institute of Houston and has been creating quilts for more than thirty years. Experimentation with quilting techniques led her to develop her own unique style “Picture Piecing”. Cynthia’s quilts have been honored with many awards, including two Best of Shows at the prestigious International Quilt Association. Her quilt, Piece and Quiet was distinguished as one of the Hundred Best Quilts of the 20th Century.
Cynthia teaches and lectures nationally and internationally. In addition, she is the designer and owner of England Design Studios which is a publishing/pattern company which specializes in the Picture Piecing technique. She has over 50 patterns and two books using this technique. The books include a beginner book called “Picture Piecing Traditional Quilts”, and now in it’s third printing “Picture Piecing Dramatic Pictorial Quilts”, which explains how to take a photo and turn it into a quilt using this process.
Her technique is NOT a foundation or paper piecing technique. Visit Cynthia’s Website for free tutorial videos.
