Trisch Price

Trisch started quilting in the early 1990’s when she was working during the day as a software engineer and attending graduate school at night. With technology seemingly taking over her life, she was in need of a low-tech diversion. Trisch started making contemporary and art quilts. Around 2005, Modern quilting took over her studio.
She lives in Overland Park, Kansas with her husband and three children. She is a member of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild and the Blue Valley Quilters Guild. Her first book, Accentuate the Negative was published in early 2014 followed by Tree of Life Quilts. She has been published in several magazines including: American Quilter, Stitch, Generation Q, and Quilting Arts Gift. Her blog can be found at www.hadleystreetquilts.com. She co-owns Everyday Stitches, a pattern company, with Jenifer Dick which can be found at www.everdaystitches.com.
