Houston, the Biggest Quilt Show Ever, Part 2

 Please click on the title to read the full post.

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

On this Thanksgiving Eve, I want to take a moment to thank you all for reading about and witnessing my studio work, my students’ work and for taking my classes.  I am always grateful for your time and attention. Your art making and my art making matters greatly in uplifting the world, and I hope I have been helpful in making your art work shine.  We all need to acknowledge this contribution we make as artists- it is so important to giving people an alternative to the ugliness that is far too prevalent. We share beauty, light, color, and love in the form of fabric and thread, and that should never go unrecognized or minimized.  So sew on, and share the love!!

So Houston.

I’m just gonna share a buttload of fabric/thread love that jumped in front of my camera in the spare moments I had in between teaching.  Enjoy.

First the new Kaffe Fassett’s:

As always the workmanship and colors are stunning.

Some beauties from the Fly Me To The Moon exhibit above and below some abstract yumminess.

And some more random lovelies:

There are many  more, but it’s getting late and I need to publish this in time to get to you before Christmas! Next week: some photos from my classes!

Watch this space for upcoming classes!



Would you like to work with me one on one?

One of my private clients, Susan, has had her quilt, “Nature Takes Back Her Own”, accepted into the prestigious Houston IQA World of Beauty Show.

NatureTakesBackHerOwn 72

As part of our work together, I coached her on the making of this quilt.  She was able to realize her vision to design, make and get her art quilt into one of the best shows in the world!  How about you, are you ready???

Look into my 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.

I’m usually Johnny on the Spot but missed the boat last week re these BIG THANKS.  Loved your presentation. Heard very positive and supportive remarks from the guests…thank you again for the well-defined and creative presentation.  Look forward to seeing you again.

  1. A dear friend saw your link to Houston this year and forwarded it to me. I was surprised and delighted to see my piece, Cosmic Moon Over the Mountain. I was unable to attend the event so this was icing on Thanksgiving!!!!! Thank you!
