January in the Gallery

Quilt by Missy Shay

Textile and quilting artist Missy Shay is this month’s showcase in the T. Ross Kelly Family Gallery.

Originally inspired by her mother and older sister, Missy started by sewing clothes for her dolls and later, for herself. Her father then taught her the art of measuring, taking apart, and recombining materials. After working as an occupational therapist, Missy discovered quilting, and has been teaching and quilting ever since.

Her pieces for this show showcase her comfort with multiple media types, using paper and foundation piecing, appliqué and reverse appliqué, and stained glass. Ms. Shay now teaches at Cambridge Quilt Shop. Be sure to check her work out!
