David Owen Hastings

David is a quilter, graphic designer, print, and textile artist, and was the 2020 President of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. He creates richly-layered contemporary artwork and modern minimal quilt and textile designs. For over 20 years, he’s exhibited stitched paper artwork in galleries and juried shows, and worked exclusively with non-profit organizations on their branding and communications.

David’s creative approach to modern quilting has led to a busy schedule of workshops and lectures on quilting, branding for artists, fine art and textile techniques. Sharing knowledge, encouraging creativity, and teaching new skills are personal passions for him. He also loves to travel, especially in Asia, and enjoy sharing experiences and inspiration through travel photos and stories.


Exploring Nature with Paper and Stitch

October 21, 7PM on Zoom

This talk starts with a review of David’s stitched paper
artwork, which he has been creating for 20 years.
He gives examples of where he gets inspiration, and what
his process is like. David then talks about how quilters
can find inspiration in the world around us, and how
his journey as a maker has taken him from gallery
artist into the world of modern quilting.
