I am MICHAEL DAVISON

I have always been connected to tactile forms of art. I love to run my hands across an intricate mosaic and feel its smooth worn glass and stone held in place with the grit of grout. I love to feel the twists and turns of a fibrously chunky yarn afghan. I love to feel the simple beauty of a hand-crafted wooden box. But more than anything, I love the weight, drape, and feel of a quilt and the textiles that are transformed into its making. Whether to snuggle with, sleep under, or admire as a work of art on a wall; quilts have been my passion for almost 25 years now. I have experienced all aspects of the quilting industry and love to create unique fabric combination quilts, foundation paper piece, teach, and longarm quilt. I am proud to be a Judy Niemeyer Quiltworx Certified Instructor!

MY FIRST QUILT – 1999

After a brief attempt at quilting in 1986 – this was my true first quilt, made in 1999. I opted for blocks with sashing and a pieced outter border. I came up with the block designs and cut templates from plastic. What a mess. I didn’t know what Y-Seams were, but figured out quick enough. This is not my best work. But it’s always fun to look back at it in joy.

UNCHARTED WATERS – 2022

Fabric choice is always key for me unless the pattern speaks for itself and I decide to use solids. In this Quiltworx pattern, Uncharted Waters, I went full out Tim Holtz with a combination of vintage nostalgia alongside wickedly fun halloween prints.
This happened to be the quilt I started constructing during my first trip to work with Judy Niemeyer at Quiltworx in Montana.
So much fun!

CORAL REEF – 2024

Coral Reef is a Quiltworx Technique of the Month and my first finish of 2024. I had put these bright Kaffe Fassett fabrics to this pattern over a year ago in my planning process and it was so fun to see it all come together. Some of my color inspiration came from the Crimson Poppy cover quilt, but with some substitutions and added prints – one of which was fussy cut to further create the spinning effect of this curvy quilt!
