Judy Gascho-Jutzi is teaching 3D Landscapes

Judy’s passion for quiltmaking comes from a love of colour, fabrics, fibres and sewing. While custom sewing for her interior design business, she began creating unique quilts for charity auctions which started her on her journey of exploration of the quilt as art. Her main focus has become the three dimensional landscape quilts done in he own distinctive style. Her time now is spent creating these art quilts, presenting trunk shows and exhibitions, teaching workshops and welcoming commissions. She has been the featured quilt artist at the St. Jacob’s Quilt Gallery and Quilt & Fibre Festival. Her work has been accepted into two Ontario Juried Shows and the Grand National Quilt Exhibit. Commissioned work has been created for the Canadian Heritage River Systems, The Record, Wilfred Laurier University and private collectors.
