Krista Hennebury - Visits Bay of Quinte Modern Quilt Guild
Krista Hennebury is a geologist by training and quilter by choice. She's been quilting since 2000 in her small home studio near Vancouver, B.C. She blogs about her work and travels at ...
Passionate about sharing her love of quilting with others and fostering community through stitching together, Krista established a successful day-retreat business in 2005.
She is a popular teacher and presenter at both general and modern guilds across Canada and internationally, including an Alaska cruise, Australia, Sweden, the U.S., Scotland, England and at QuiltCanada 2019.
Krista makes traditionally-informed modern quilts using designer prints, solids, linen and retired clothing. Her original patterns have been published in Stitch, Australian Homespun, Quilters Connection, Simply Moderne and Quilt Now magazines.
An active member of the MQG, CQA and her local general guild, Krista has had one or more quilts juried into QuiltCon and Quilt Canada since 2014 and won awards at both shows.
Her book of retreat-inspired projects Make It, Take It was published by Martingale in 2015 and she’s twice been a guest on American Patchwork & Quilting Podcast with Pat Sloan.
Krista is delighted that her quilt “Chess on the Steps” appears in Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century published in 2017 by the Modern Quilt Guild and “Blackbird Fly” appears in Thomas Knauer’s Why We Quilt, 2019.
