Her quilt, Piece and Quiet was distinguished as one of the Hundred Best Quilts of the 20th Century. Cynthia teaches and lectures nationally and internationally. To date, she has shared her techniques at quilting events in South Africa, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Canada, Australia, Spain and Mexico. In addition, she is the designer and owner of England Design Studios which is a publishing/ pattern company which specializes in the “Picture Piecing technique.
