"Red is a neutral,” isn’t just a saying for Freddy Moran. She puts it into practice! Freddy didn’t start quilting until she was 60 years old. Her daughter in law signed them up for a quilting class. She initially thought she wasn’t interested, but she was pulled in. Early on in her quilting journey, she was drawn to color, and used it with abandon. Her quilting philosophy is, “if it’s not fun, why are you doing it?” “10 colors don’t work, but 100 do.” Freddy Moran. In one of her most recent projects, Freddy made one face quilt a day for 54 days. At the end of the endeavor, she had a whole collection of faces to share. When she reached the 54th day, she decided to keep creating face quilts as long as they continue to inspire her. Freddy Moran lives in Northern California, and regularly teaches quilting classes and workshops. She has worked on many quilt collections and several quilting book collaborations.
