Meet the Author

Although she enjoyed her former career as a professional violinist, this phase of Laurie Shifrin's life has been the most creative and rewarding. She feels fortunate to live in the lush Pacific Northwest, where her love for colors and textures found in nature is constantly fed and nurtured. Laurie has authored two previous books on using batiks, but this is her first with C&T Publishing. Being a published author has opened up the world of international teaching. Laurie regularly travels around the United States and Canada to share her enthusiasm and love for batiks and her no-nonsense quilting tips. Her appearance on the television show Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson is still shown in reruns. Many quilters know Laurie from her many years as manager of the wonderful Seattle quilt shop In The Beginning, which closed its doors a few years ago. She continues as a technical editor for In The Beginning publications, including books and patterns. Laurie's other quilting endeavors have led her to design the featured pattern for a batik kit from Timeless Treasures. She has contributed quilts to numerous books by other authors, including a recently released book on table runners. Laurie's quilts and quilt designs are regularly featured by Hoffman, Island Batik, and Princess Mirah Design at International Quilt Market.
