Ruth Aquilani

"The Island lends itself to being creative"

Ruth is a Montreal native who now resides in Murray Harbour. From an early age Ruth discovered her love of sewing and knitting. Throughout the years she has expanded her skills and developed her aesthetic.

 

Her quilting work spans all sizes, from intricate wall hangings to full sized bed quilts. She prefers non traditional bright and bold patterns and colours, and often designs her own quilts.
