Christine Barnes

The Main Street Gallery will feature quilts by Christine Barnes, a renowned quilter, author, designer, and teacher in love with color, design and writing.

Barnes earned bachelor degrees in design and journalism, which resulted in a book-writing career with Sunset Magazine featuring articles in home decorating, soft furnishings, and home remodeling. In between book projects, Barnes pursued her first passion: color and textiles. Her work has appeared in such books as Threads, American Patchwork & Quilting, McCall’s Quilting, American Quilter, and Fabrications, a British quilting magazine.

Barnes’ other pursuits revolve around her home resulting in articles that appeared in Sunset books titled “Reinvent Your Kitchen,” “Before & After Bathrooms,” and “Faux and Decorative Painting”.
