I I know this is a little off the wall, but I am looking to connect with other art quilters on STX to meet and exchange ideas and information. Watercolor quilts, fabric collage, other techniques -- just something non-traditional, no use of patterns, creative. Anybody out there?

You should ask at the fabric stores on STX if they know of any quilters. I know the ladies at the fabric stores on STT know of quilters.

there was a quilting exhibit one time at Whim, set up in one of the old buildings west of the main pavillion..might have been at mango melee, or Christmas spoken here, or the late spring art exhibit weekend.....bet it might be 10 years ago though. Some of the volunteers or board members might recall, as many go back longer than that with their affiliation. Don't think any of the paid staff has that length of time there, though I could be wrong. A search on google might turn something up though.

Hi,
My name is Jamila and I'm an art quilter living on St. Croix. I have exhibited downtown at Maufe Gallery and also at the Botanical Gardens and at the Whim. I also exhibit at the annual Good Hope Exhibit, although this year I exhibited mixed media works and not art quilts.

As far as I know, I'm the only art quilter on island. There are a couple of groups of traditional quilters here but I'm not involved with them. I usually just work on my own.

You can check out my work at http://www.CalypsoArtQuilts.com and my blog at http://quilterinstcroix.blogspot.com/

Oops, meant botanical garden for the exhibit I mentioned, though I was also thinking of some quilts I've seen at whim...

Good day! I will be moving to STT soon and I too am a quilter. I enjoy the more traditional quilting although I do touch on the art quilter in me from time to time. Does anyone out there have contact info for any quilting guilds or groups? Who sells the best fabrics in the islands?
Thanks!!:@)

Jamila was the quilter I was looking for -- her work is very creative and tropical. Thanks to all who answered my query, and I would still like to make contact with other art quilters. To cookieboss STX has several traditional quilt groups, and I'm sure that STT does also.
