About Me

Hi World

I am Barbara Olson a national and international award-winning quilt artist, teacher and   lecturer and author. “In The Beginning” one of my art quilts was chosen as one  of the best 100 American Quilts of The Century. I have written two books “Journey of an Art   Quilter; Creative Strategies and Techniques”  and “Singularly Dramatic; Creating    Sensational Images with One Strong Focus”   For the last twenty eight years I have been developing art and giving workshops and   lectures  for those interested in expanding their unique creative   talents in the area of quilting arts. Along with this web site see my other web site: http://www.barbaraolson    When I am not on the road teaching, lecturing  I am at home in my  studio with my husband Larry in Billings, Montana. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


I have always been inspired by spirals in nature. Flowers are absorbing a lot of my interest too. 


Many of my art quilts are created  using hand dyed, hand painted and commercial fabrics.  The construction technique I use is turned edge machine applique. A few of my pieces are fused.

Career Highlights

I have been a quilt artist, national and international teacher and lecturer for the past 25 years.  I have written two books "Journey of an Art Quilter" and "Singularly Dramatic Images with One Strong  Focus"
