List of American Authors

Meet two of our newest authors—Esther Vermeer and Geesje Baron, whose book '3-D Folded Blocks' is about to hit the shelves. Both live in rural Manitoba, Canada, both emigrated from The Netherlands at different points in their lives, and both have interesting and eclectic artistic backgrounds. Is it any wonder that they became instant friends when they first met?

Esther, a quilt designer and painter, was introduced to quilting in 1998. When planning a new project, her inspirations often include North European mythology, the brilliant colors and natural shapes of Art Nouveau, and the elegance of Art Deco. Her work has been featured in various exhibits. When she’s not in her studio or taking classes, she teaches private and group workshops in English and French.

Geesje (pronounced “Gay-shuh”) is co-owner/operator of a dairy farm in addition to being a quilt designer and longarm quilter. She has a diverse background in spinning, weaving, fabric painting and dyeing and has been quilting since 1986. Her primary inspirations are the abstract geometric and impossible shapes found in the work of Victor Vasarely, Oscar Reutersvard, M.C. Escher, and Tamas Farkas. She has won awards in both provincial and national juried quilt shows and enjoys sharing her passion for quilting and dyeing with her students.

After car-pooling to guild meetings together for about five years, Esther and Geesje realized that summer was too long a season to put the quilting supplies away. So they started meeting weekly to quilt year ’round and it wasn’t long before they began talking about writing a book.

3-D Folded Blocks is a complete collaboration of these two very talented quilters pooling their ideas and abilities.
