Art Quilting Dreams Came True!

Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!


It’s Spring here in North Carolina, and everything is blooming!

Yes, with persistence, learning, and practice your  dream art quilts can come to life.

I want to take a moment to share the final, or almost final results of two of my students.  Janet’s tango dancers are just about done. I’m really proud of her for taking the risk of trying something new and doing a great job.



Here it is before quilting.  I think she really captured the movement and the shading.

And Pat’s piece is almost done too.  She will be adding more texture and a cabochon with beading to her piece.  The background fabric is not added yet.



I think all the beading she is planning will add some really cool texture, like she did in this small piece here:



I can’t wait to see it all done!

These are just some of the results my students were able to make in the Design Your Dream Art Quilt online class.  Stay tuned as I will be offering this class again this Summer!


The Needle Felting Flower video IS ready.  So if you haven’t seen it and want to get your free pattern- just email me and I’ll send it your way.  See below.






New 6 month Private Coaching Masterclass!

 I have extended my private coaching program, from 3 months to 6 months.  I believe the transformation my students are looking for must take place over a longer period of time to have a lasting impact.

I want you to make the most amazing, original art quilts that you can.  That is why I am now accepting private students who are serious about their creative expression in the world of art quilting.  Take advantage of my 17+ years as a textile artist, and speed up your learning curve.
