MICKEY LAWLER 


Using her grandmother's quilts as her only guide, Mickey began making quilts in 1968 and within ten years had constructed and hand-quilted over 100 full-size and crib-size quilts and had taught quilt making to over 1000 students. In 1983 she began painting cotton to satisfy her need for landscape and textural fabric and subsequently created Skydyes, a business specializing in hand-painted fabrics. Her exhibits and awards for quilting and surface design include the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, the Fabric Gardens exhibit which toured Japan in 1992, and Art Quilts: Playing with a Full Deck. Lawler co-authored Not Just Another Quilt and authored Skydyes: A Visual Guide To Fabric Painting. She also created an instructional DVD on Landscape Painting and Skyquilts, and more recently, taught online classes. Mickey has been in demand as an enthusiastic instructor of her serendipitous style of fabric painting for the past 25 years.
