Christine Perrigo is an award-winning, internationally exhibited longarm quilter and has been quilting since 2003. With a background in computer science and 15 years experience in the computer industry, she has a unique, highly technical approach to computerized quilting and surface design. She focuses on high end, custom digital quilting for modern quilts and approaches each quilt as opportunity to explore new territory and push boundaries.
Collaboration, exploration, and invention are cornerstones to Christine’s process. She has the ability to see what others cannot in their own work and treats quilting as an additional element to enhance the one-of-a-kind nature of a quilt. Since 2014, a Gammill Statler has been her partner in learning and exploring the world of longarm quilting.
Aesthetically, Christine loves contrast and interplay; minimal and maximal, organic and geometric, balance and asymmetry. She uses thread as paint and batting as sculpture. As a teacher, she focuses on how her students’ can incorporate her approach into their quilting design and find a unique voice in their own quilts.
Christine’s work has been featured in publications such as Simply Moderne, QuiltCon Magazine, Curated Quilts, American Quilter, Scraps Inc. 2 and Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century. Her quilting and personal work has hung at AQS Paducah, Road to California, QuiltCon, the International Quilt Festival, the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, and the National Quilt Museum.
