Hello quilters, my name is Peter Byrne. I am an international award-winning, published modern quilter and teacher with a deep passion for innovation and design.
My strength is maintaining a fresh approach to quilting, with original designs and technical mastery. My goal is innovation, my passion is creativity and I am thrilled to have opportunities to share my work within the quilting community.
I’m presently offering a Virtual Trunk Show called “Behind the Seams” with Peter Byrne.
The presentation includes over 350 slides, taking viewers through my own personal quilting journey. In total, I share 22 quilts and going virtual has allowed me to include “how to” pictures of my quilt making process, along with close ups of every quilt!
We start by having a look at my experience of winning “Best in Show” and “Best Machine Quilting Frameless” at QuiltCon 2020. I welcome everyone in, to have a look at my sewing studio and then we go all the way back to 2009 and view the first two quilts I made.
We move forward to 2017, when I became a full time student of the craft and joined the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild to further my quilting experience. I walk you through my quilts made in 2017 and 2018 as I practised and developed my quilting skills, followed by sharing the spotlight at Quilts at the Creek.
We then have a close look at my quilts made in 2019, when I decided to start making quilts specifically for juried shows and finish the show with all of my current work from 2020, and 2021. This is a fast paced, pre-recorded 45 minute presentation, followed by a question and answer period!
The fee for my Virtual Trunk Show is $350, all in.
