Personal: Katie Pasquini Masopust has taught quilt classes as far away as Australia and New Zealand but what she enjoys most, happens right at home.  She likes to walk and dance and play with her three dogs: Ziggy a Chesapeake retriever; Jake, a yellow lab; and Buddy an Australian Shepard. Katie also enjoys her three wonderful step children and three grandchildren.

How did you get started in quilting? I took what I thought was an embroidery class which turned out to be a quilting class and was hooked.

Does anyone else in your family quilt? My sister and my cousin and I make log cabin quilts together twice a year.

Where do you find inspiration for your quilting? I find inspiration for my quilts in the world around me and through my paintings.Watercolors Tangled by Katie Pasquini Masopust
