MEMBER SPOTLIGHT


Selina TOEdter

Member since 2021

Selina has been quilting for over ten years. Her work explores the combination of traditional methods like hand quilting and applique with contemporary perspectives and designs. One of her most ambitious projects in this style is a Baltimore album quilt with each block illustrating different rap lyrics. Guerrilla gardening, death, and the decay of material objects are just some of the other themes explored in her quilts. She has won multiple awards in hand quilting including a NACQJ Award of Merit for her hand-quilted wedding dress, which was recently on display at AQSG's 2022 Seminar in San Diego. 

She recently co-chaired the Brandywine Valley Quilt guild's 2022 show, supporting the revitalization of quilt shows in eastern PA after the COVID-19 pandemic. Since being welcomed into AQSG and the Futures discussion group in 2021, Selina looks forward to contributing to the mission of advancing knowledge of quilts and quilting. She is also working towards becoming a certified quilt judge and developing her unique style. 

She studied at University of Kent and the London School of Economics and is a native of Kennett Square, PA, where she currently lives with her husband.
