David Taylor’s obsession with fabric began at an early age, salvaging tiny scraps from his mother’s sewing area trash bin. This began his love and appreciation for fabric, though not a love for quilting. After college, David embarked on a career in graphic design (before computers!), primarily working for newspapers for 20 years. David’s first quilt design was in 1999, a fundraiser quilt collaboration. Following a visit to Houston in 2001 for Quilt Festival, David’s obsession with fabric turned into an obsession for quilting as art. In 2006, David discovered a love for hand-applique, and all of his works since then have been stitched together by hand. A decade into his quilting art journey, he has exhibited his work internationally and teaches at numerous venues throughout the year. He is now a full-time quilt teacher and speaker living in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
