Laura Heine began quilting over 35 years ago. The journey of quilting led to opening Fiberworks, her quilt shop in Billings, Montana. She has also designed over 50 lines of fabric, has her own collection of threads, and her current obsession is making collage quilts! Her work has been published in many magazines. Her book “Color Fusion…Fiberworks by Laura Heine”, written in 2004, is a book of her personal journey. She has won numerous awards…the most prestigious being the $10,000 Bernina Award for Best Machine Workmanship from American Quilters Society. Many of her quilts have been featured in ads and brochures. Her collage quilts showcase fused applique, cut flower motifs and an impressionistic way of using color and value to create one-of-a-kind quilts using fabric as her palette. Her latest line of fabric, “Color Fusion”, will be available June of 2019. It includes collaged fabric from her book, Color Fusion.
