We are excited to introduce another Island Batik Ambassador – the talented Suzy Webster of Websterquilt! For Suzy, it is the fifth year in the program and we are so happy to have her continue creating beautiful projects and sharing her passion of quilting with the 2020 team!
Based in Minnesota, Suzy Webster has been a quilter since age eight when she arranged some scrap triangles and told her mother: “You should sew it like this.” One of the things Suzy loves about quilting is that the design possibilities and fabric choices are endless. She has been entering competitions since college and has many quilt show ribbons to her credit including Road to California, Machine Quilter’s Exposition, The American Quilter’s Society Shows, and International Quilt Festival.

Suzy likes both modern and traditional quilting styles, but she prefers to put her own twist on every quilt she makes. When picking colors for a new project, only one thing matters to her : “They have to be bright! I usually pick a fabric I really love and then work from their choosing coordinating fabrics”.
