This is SAQA Europe/Middle East: The Middle East

My name is Amie Starchuk and I am living in Saudi Arabia. We came here in 2001 from Canada with my husband's job. I love to travel and have enjoyed living in this part of the world and seeing so many places! 

I have been quilting for twenty years. I have fallen in love with creating art quilts. My favorite part of the process is the free motion quilting! I love small stitches which create great texture! Most of my work is mounted on stretcher bars, and sometimes framed. 

The Hand of Fatima 8" X 9"

Antique painted doors are a popular collectible in Arabia. I am currently creating a series of Arabian doors. 

Arabian Door II 6 1/2" x 9"1/2

When I am not creating art quilts, I am traveling and honing my photography other passion!

  1. Nice to meet you Amie. I really like the way you depict the texture of the things which inspire your art.
    I did a search to find your other work. Love the Regal pieces on your website.
