Collection: Ann Brauer

Ann Brauer, quilting   Shelburne Falls, MA

Ann Brauer grew up on a farm in Illinois where she developed a firm sense of the importance of place and being. Her grandmother made wonderful traditional quilts to create beauty. The last quilt she made was a postage stamp quilt for her granddaughter Ann who slept under this quilt for years marveling at the detail and care. Although she loved to sew, Ann never felt she could make a quilt.  Instead she used her desire to find order from the mixture of life and became an attorney. Eventually Brauer rediscovered her love of  fabric and began to make quilts. She moved from Boston to western Massachusetts and began supporting herself as a full time quiltmaker.

The training and discipline she developed as a lawyer is now used to push her quilt designs  to convey feelings of time and place. Each quilt is a new adventure that starts with a name and concept. It can take years to go from the concept to figuring out how to achieve the overall effect she is seeking while retaining the same care and attention to detail that she learned from her grandmother.
