About Vikki Pignatelli

Innovative quilt artist, international teacher, and author of Quilting Curves, Vikki Pignatelli is a painter and sculptor, who has more than 30 years experience in several art forms. Vikki became a quilter in 1991 and quickly turned her passion for intense colors and flowing design into national award-winning quilts.

A full-time quilt artist, author, teacher, and lecturer, she has developed a layering technique for piecing curves. She and her quilts have been featured in national publications and the 1998 American Quilter's Society Art Engagement Calendar. She has won eighteen awards from national and international quilt shows, including a first place award in Art Large for Portrait of My Soul at the International Quilt Festival at Houston and Best Color and Design in the 2002 NQA annual show. She also is the author of Quilting Curves published by Quilt Digest Press in May, 2001.

Vikki is also founder and former chairwoman of the Sacred Threads Quilt Exhibition. This national exhibition, held biennially, displays work from all over the United States and Canada and features themes of spirituality, inspiration, healing, and grief.

In her workshops Vikki teaches her new technique with emphasis on self-confidence, a sense of adventure, persistence and inspirational motivation.
