And another quilt done for the Berkshire Craft Show this August 12-14 at Monument Mountain High School in Great Barrington, MA. One of my favorite little shows. Hope to see some of you there.

In this eyeglass case I tried to capture the best of summer with the rich full colors of magenta and hot pink against bright green.

I am loving the calm browns in this new art quilt. So subtle and yet so varied. Wouldn't it add interest to your home or office.

Loving the greens in this table runner. Doesn't it remind you of spring?

I do love these imaginary landscapes, don't you? This one I call "red hills". Can't you just feel the heat of the prairie sun.

Another in my series of "imaginary landscapes" that I just posted. I am having so much fun making these slightly smaller quilts that I can finish more quickly. What do you think?

What a thrill. Today my interview came out in the Textile Artist. Do check it out if you get a chance. Thanks Daniel--it was a pleasure to work with you.
Ann Brauer has been using the traditions of quilt making and contemporary concepts of art to create her unique abstract landscapes for the last 34 years. Each quilt is made of commercial cotton that she cuts and carefully pieces to create a statement that is larger than the quilt and...

Loving the blue river running through the calm brown woods. Wouldn't this look great in your country home?

Don't you love these modern quilted placemats? Aren't the colors both sophisticated but also warm? And best of all, they are washable.

Story
Tagline
Quilts that push boundaries and explore new horizons.
Introduction
Color is everything. I am passionate about my unique and recognizable contemporary art quilts that use color, fabric and the traditions of quilt making to explore the prairies of Illinois where I grew up, the rolling hills of western Massachusetts where I now live and landscapes of my imagination. I constantly work with images of dawn and horizons--those places which hold so many possibilities.

Of course I do custom orders.

For more information check out my web site:

In my spare time I raise daylilies and iris.

Bragging rights
My work is in numerous public and private collections including the Museum of Art + Design in NYC, the Federal District Court House in Springfield, MA, the Lodge at Turning Stone, Verona, NY and Surdna Foundation in NYC. I have received the Award of Excellence at the Baltimore Fine Craft Show put on by the American Craft Council.
Work
Occupation
Studio Art Quilt Maker--I create wall hangings and quilts that use color and fabric to convey specific feelings of time and place. In addition I have a series of smaller works that are available.
