Kate Gawler has been sewing since she was eight years old, mostly garment sewing, until 2011, when she made a bed quilt and then couldn’t stop. In 2018 she joined the Maine Modern Quilters and found her tribe, serving a term as president in 2022 – 2023. Her quilts have been juried into QuiltCon and have won three blue ribbons at Maine Quilts. 2023 was a high point, as her quilt “A Game of Jacks” was juried into QuiltCon, featured in Cassandra Beaver’s blog, and published in Quiltmania magazine. At Maine Quilts it received an honorable mention and the Award of Merit for Outstanding Achievement in Quiltmaking from the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges. Kate is easily seduced by cool patterns, but then loses interest and is much happier taking an idea of her own and seeing where it leads her. She loves freehand cutting, improvisational piecing, and tertiary color combos. She is a retired nurse with a degree in Studio Arts who lives and sews in Belgrade, Maine.
