Michelle Wilkie is a self-taught textile artist and designer of modern quilts. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and son. Her education and work experience in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) has provided her a unique opportunity to blend her loves of math, science and quilting. She currently enjoys exploring both Minimalism and improvisation in her works.
Michelle loves to share her passion with others, and empower them to try their hand at both design and quilting. She enjoys teaching quilt design, and improvisation. She was the President of the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild from 2015-2016. Still an active member of the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild and the international parent group The Modern Quilt Guild, she has written several articles, produced webinars and Quilt of the Month patterns for the guild. She is a regularly contributor to Love Patchwork and Quilting, in which two projects appeared on the cover. With her love of design and quilting, she has embarked on a new project – writing a book on the process of quilt design (expected publication date Q3 2018).
Her quilts have been semi-finalists for several juried quilt shows; QuiltCon (2015, 2016, & 2017), AQS Grand Rapids (2016, 2017), and Modern Quilt Showcase (Houston Quilt Market 2016).
