Lorena Uriarte is an award-winning, modern maker who values the pragmatic nature and enduring beauty of bed quilts. She mostly creates larger pieces with the intention of them being used daily to bring warmth and joy to a space. Her work sits at the traditional end of the modern aesthetic, sliding up and down that scale depending on the audience. Her quilts have been exhibited in Australia and internationally at Quiltcon.

Lorena loves to use hand and machine techniques with a bold use of colour, in both commercial prints and plain fabrics. She aims to create engaging quilts with a lot of movement. With previous experience in the education and hospitality sectors, Lorena is now passionate about teaching patchwork and quilting to encourage others to live a fulfilled and creative life to cope with the stresses of modern life.

Lorena was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina before moving to Sydney, Australia
