Quilt No. 5 | Michelle Mura
Michelle Mura has been creating and making art her whole life. Michelle’s father was a skilled woodworker and her mother is a talented seamstress, quilter, and crafter extraordinaire. A deep love and appreciation for handmade items was instilled in her from a young age. Michelle is an improvisational quilter and has been making quilts since 1995. She loves to play with color and draws inspiration from the early 20th century patchwork utility quilts. Michelle believes that quilts are meant for both beauty and comfort.
In addition to quilting, Michelle empowers neurodivergent children and their families as a Pediatric OT and is establishing an independent practice to provide Parent Coaching. Michelle lives in Portland, OR with her husband and three sons. She loves long walks with her dog and spending time with her family.
This quilt is an interpretation of a log cabin quilt. Michelle is drawn to the simple form of log cabin blocks as well as their history as a symbol for hearth and home. The tradition of quilting speaks to her both as means to produce beautiful, functional objects and as an endless opportunity for creative expression.
