Hometown: Shelburne Falls, MA

From her hometown of Shelburne Falls, MA, Amy Barry creates quilts as fabric paintings that express her artistic vision and evoke an emotional connection with the viewer. “With my bold use of color and design, my quilts energize a room while their touchable nature conveys a sense of comfort. I create my quilts as fabric paintings that express my artistic vision and evoke an emotional connection with the viewer.”

Barry’s love for making quilts expanded several years ago when she began making "Special Moments" quilts for customers from their own collection of special clothing, including tee shirts and baby clothes. Each quilt is unique and reflects a special story of someone's life sewn into a beautiful and lasting piece of art. Whether it is an original design, or a quilt custom made to a customer’s specification using vintage handkerchiefs, concert tee shirts or other favorite frocks, Barry believes memory quilts can be a great way to weave together a story about a favorite hobby, activity or memory.
