Quilts and quilted items, handmade in Brooklyn by Angeline Roth
About Angeline Roth
While growing up in The Netherlands (Holland), I was surrounded by many talented arts and crafts people. However, it wasn't until I came to the US that I first noticed and fell in love with quilts. With the help of friends and books I taught myself the art and technique of quilt-making.
Over the past 20 plus years I've made many quilts, taught quilt-making to groups and individuals, and designed crafts for craft magazines. I've received numerous commissions including a quilt for an advertising campaign of Absolut Vodka which I made in cooperation with another Brooklyn quilter, Jo Ann O'Callaghan. The quilt was coordinated by The Museum of American Folk Art and featured in Country Home magazine.
On a voluntary basis I have worked for ABC Quilts, a nationwide organization, which distributes quilts to children with serious illnesses. I have also taught quilt-making to public school children and have helped out with the NY Quiltproject, organized by the Museum of American Folk Art.
I am a founding member of The Brooklyn Quilters, an informal group of quilters which meets once a week. This group is really important to me. We have learned together, raised our kids together, and laugh and cry together. There is a lot of talent and enormous creativity in this group and we share it all.
I am also a member of The Quilters Guild of Brooklyn, a dynamic group of women and men with a great deal of talent. The Guild grows stronger every year.
When I started out, it was hard to find the types of cotton fabrics that are ideal for quilting. Now there are many stunning, gorgeous 100% cotton fabrics available. I love using these fabrics and fabric scraps to create beautiful, yet usable and practical items such as: baby quilts, wall hangings, table runners, placemats, coasters, potholders, trivets, bookmarks, and more!
All items make great gifts.
Larger quilts are available on commission as well. Please email me for more information.
