Frances Moore The Quilt Lady

During one of my evening strolls a neighbor pointed out a cute little house set back off the street. She told me that one of the best quilters in Los Angeles lived there.
I caught up with Frances one day as she unloaded groceries from her car and asked if she would mind sharing some of her story with us. She kindly consented.
Fascinated by the process of creating pictures with fabric instead sewing a soon-to-be-forgotten new outfit, Frances Moore began quilting in 1996.  In 2003, after her first gallery show in Los
Angeles, Sisters of the Cloth,  she began teaching quilting at local quilt shops, at her guild Quilter’s By The Sea in Long Beach and recently at retreats for The Two Wacky Women. She has entered quilts at Road To California and the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara. Frances says ‘I also had a quilt at the Houston Show, but that doesn’t count because it was small and in my purse at the time.”
