Student Work at Houston

 Please click on the title to read the full post.

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

I know you want a sneak peak into the classrooms I taught at Houston.  Here are some quick snaps of the student work at Houston.

The Posh, Pet Portrait class was a big hit.  It was full of happy pet owners ready to celebrate their pets.  The big surprise for me was that everyone also got a pattern to make a Huey portrait ( my kitty).  No one opted to make that one, because they all wanted to make a portrait of their own pets, duh!  I don’t know why that was a big surprise for me- it makes perfect sense now :).  Anyway, here are some of the wonderful pets that emerged.  They are all so full of personality!


Another new class I taught was the Needle- felted fancy tulip class.  This was the only sewing class I taught and we were in the Elna room.  The machines were great, and we used the round clear plastic foot as we free motioned over the felt.  Take a look:

We had such fun, and I had such lovely, and talented students.  I felt truly blessed.

Here is a few short videos to see the process and to whet your appetite.


I may be putting this class online for next year.  Which brings me to my next question, and please answer in the comments:  What class/technique would you like me to teach online next year?  I can guess, but I’d much rather know what you all would like 🙂


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.

Here’s what one guild VP had to say recently:

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.
