Showcase of Quilts Designed by Cristina De Miranda of Ships and Violins
The Trunk Show will showcase quilts designed by Cristina De Miranda of Ships and Violins. The journey begins with a look at her improvised patchwork pillow covers inspired by a thru-hike of the East Coast Trail, and continues through her designs as a burgeoning modern quilt designer. The show will include details about her inspiration and her approach to design and how pursuing a creative business is not so different from a long walk in the woods.
