While Mary continues to elude detection by the FBI, local library, and most Google searches, this profile might jeopardize all that. She usually creates 3-dimensional mixed media/fiber art, also known as “stuff”. Her studio won a 2011 Demented People’s Choice award in the category “Most Likely to Have Been the Result of an Explosion”.
Katie Pasquini Masopust
For nearly 30 years Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality contemporary art quilts that have been coveted and collected by a broad range of admirers. From her early beginnings as a painter dabbling in traditional quilt making, her work has evolved from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to very painterly landscapes and abstracts executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques.
Katie’s easy, energetic manner has made her a very popular teacher and lecturer. When not in residence at her studio in Santa Fe she travels the world presenting her contemporary quilting theories and techniques to classes; not only in North America, but in Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand. Awards and accolades have been numerous for Katie, culminating with her 2005 induction into a very select group of art quilt professionals who have earned the Silver Star Award presented by Houston Quilt Festival.
A prolific author, Katie shares her enthusiasm for the art of creative quilting through her numerous books, her many classes, and now as a member of the Experius Academy Advisory Council as they work to develop the art mission for the new Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado – a destination resort for quilting enthusiasts and fiber artists: also host of Katie’s Alegre Retreats.

Phil D. Jones
Phil Jones’s current interest in making art began in 1990 with several panels he made for the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. He then began making art quilts–intended as wall hangings, as opposed to the traditional bed quilt–as a broader creative pursuit. Having learned to sew on his grandmother’s treadle sewing machine when he was 5 years old, Phil pursued clothing construction starting in his late teens. It was natural, then, to make the transition to using fiber as an expressive medium in adulthood.
Phil is a veteran in the art quilt world showing in various well-known venues, including:
- Quilt National, Dairy Barn Arts Center, Athens, OH;
- Quilt 21, The Brush Art Gallery, Lowell, MA;
- Art Quilts at the Sedgwick, Sedgwick Cultural Center, Phildadelphia, PA;
- Crafts National, University Park, PA
