Chris Lynn Kirsch is a fiber artist from Watertown, Wisconsin. She began her quilt journey as a traditional quilter who soon discovered an inner creativity she didn’t realize she possessed. Her work is inspired by her Christian faith and the sheer joy of playing with fiber, color and design. Chris teaches nationally and her quilts have been displayed internationally, in museums, galleries and competitions. She has written four books. She and Wendy Rieves take groups of quilters on tours throughout the US and Europe.
