Stefanie Satterwhite, the creative force behind Satterwhite Quilts, is a textile artist and graphic/ux designer currently based out of Seattle, where she lives with her partner and daughter. Her work has been featured in Curated Quilts, Love Patchwork and Quilting, QuiltCon Magazine, and others.
Using color to explore the rhythm and spatial relationships of basic geometric structures, Stefanie’s quilt designs reveal complex and rich experiences that only occur when working with very simple structures. She finds inspiration in the interactions between objects and the space in which they exist, how brains work, really big landscapes, and other stuff like that.
One of Stefanie’s favorite problem solving tactics – usually employed to remember where she put down her cell phone – is to turn upside down, hanging off a bed or a couch, and mentally retrace her steps from a different physical perspective. This practice of sparking ideas by shifting perspective carries over into her design work and is the source for many of her creative impulses.
Stefanie hopes her designs inspire you to continue telling the story of who you are and where you have been through quilting.
