Leo Ransom: Journey of an Art Quilter


From Leo:

I was born and raised in Bonham, Texas and a resident of Sherman for 40 years. I learned to do traditional piecing from my high school Home Economics teacher. I didn’t do anything with quilting after that until I needed a project for my family reunion. That was in 1998.

I joined the Sherman Quilt Guild in April of 2011. The second meeting I went to there was a quilt artist there from whom I took two workshops. Now I am more attracted to the artistic side of quilting than the traditional side, but from time to time I combine the two methods, so that I don’t forget the traditional side. Since learning the portrait techniques, I have taught classes.  Also, I have had a number of gallery showings and won awards as a mixed media and a quilt artist. My most prized win is my “1st Place victory” at Quilt Con in 2022.
