David Owen Hastings

Exploring Nature with Paper + Stitch 

About David Owen Hastings:


David is a modern quilter, graphic designer, print and textile artist, and was the 2020 President of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. He creates richly layered contemporary artwork and modern minimal quilt and textile designs. For over 20 years, David has exhibited his stitched paper artwork in galleries and juried shows and worked exclusively with nonprofit organizations on their branding and communications.

David’s creative approach to modern quilting has led to a busy schedule of workshops and lectures on quilting, branding for artists, fine art and textile techniques. Sharing knowledge, encouraging creativity, and teaching new skills are personal passions. He also loves to travel, especially in Asia, and enjoys sharing his experiences and inspiration through travel photos and stories.

“In this lecture, I talk about my work as a visual artist, and how there are similarities to how I now work as a quilter.”

David’s Journey from Stitching Paper, to Stitching Fabric

This talk starts with a review of David’s stitched paper artwork, which he has been creating and showing in galleries for over 20 years. He will give examples of where his inspiration comes from, and what his creative process is like. His artwork appeals to those who love organic processes and the beauty of nature, color and texture. David combines his monotype-printed paper with stitching on a vintage sewing machine. He will show examples and include details for those interested in creating their own stitched paper artwork.

In recent years, David has become enchanted with modern quilting and was 2020 President of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. He will talk about how quilters can find inspiration in the world around us, and how his journey as a maker has taken him from gallery artist into the world of modern quilting.
