“Behind the Seams” with Peter Byrne - December 11.

We’re welcoming Peter Byrne at our December meeting - remember that it’s a week earlier than normal on December 10th. Zoom links will be sent to paid members via email.

Hello quilters, my name is Peter Byrne. I am an international award-winning, published modern quilter and teacher with a deep passion for innovation and design. My strength is maintaining a fresh approach to quilting, with original designs and technical mastery.  


My goal is innovation, my passion is creativity and I am thrilled to have opportunities to share new techniques within the quilting community. While attending QuiltCon 2020, my quilt titled ‘Starring You’ won Best in Show and my quilt titled ‘Cityscape” won Best Machine Quilting Frameless.  


After 30 years working as a stylist and salon owner, I retired and then had the time to explore new creative outlets. I started making quilts in 2009 and to further my quilting experience, in 2017 I joined the Toronto Modern Quilting Guild and when I walked into that first guild meeting, I had never quilted a quilt.  


It was at this time, I became a full-time student of the craft and 2 years later, I designed and made Starring You. I’m very excited to share my quilts, dreams, and ambitions with you and look forward to meeting you at my Trunk Show! 


Sincerely, Peter Byrne.
