Welcome to Quilts by CTS. My name is Cindy Thury Smith; I hope you enjoy visiting my website.
It was amazing to me when I realized I had been making quilts for over fifty years (I started my first quilt in 1963). Over the years quiltmaking has changed dramatically from the fabrics and tools we use to the techniques to the uses for our quilts. I have enjoyed the journey, going from traditional patchwork to crazy piecing to working with wool and silk to creating my own designs using my computer. I was a machine queen from the very beginning and the absolute explosion in creative machine quilting and the use of machine embroidery on quilts has been a delight to me. Time and physical limitations have been minimized to the point where just about anyone can make a quilt.
I invite you to browse my Gallery by clicking on the different styles of quilts. I write regularly for the major quilting magazines and love to travel to teach to guilds; please check out my Workshops page.
Live long and sew many quilts.
