Laurel Anderson is the owner of Whisper Color and an award-winning gifted textile artist. Born and raised on the West Coast, Laurel is well known in the San Francisco Bay area as an accomplished applique quilt designer.
Her quilt designs are inspired by her love of nature as seen in her flower and natural lanscape designs which include trees and mountains. She uses a mix of color, pattern, and textures.
The name Whisper Color describes the technique Laurel uses to dye silk scarves. Laurel loves dyeing fabrics including silk scarves, wool, and bamboo batting.
Her work has been seen at West Coast quilt and guild shows. When her sons started school she joined a local quilting group that made quilts for the Richmond Rescue Mission. They made the mistake of complimenting her on her use of color. With that encouragement she thought she could try making quilts for her family. It took three to get her hooked.
