Quilting Arts Colorplay article

(this is my Demo at IQF Chicago )

I am ecstatic to announce my very first magazine article!!!

Quilting Arts magazine has published my "Colorplay" article in their October/November 2009 issue( on page 21).
I recently presented my Colorplay workshop in Madison at Quilt Expo, and I will presenting it in Houston at the IQF show in October. I found out today that this workshop in Houston is SOLD OUT! I will also be teaching my "Fiesta de Sol" workshop there (not sold out yet) and I will be doing a "Fast Fused Binding" Demo; and a "Fantasy Florals" Demo. This will be my very First Time at Houston! I am really looking forward to the experience! For more information go to
And/or look at my website schedule for dates and times.
This weekend I will be appearing at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake, Illinois at the Country Quilters "Harvest of Time" quilt show. Then in November, I will be traveling to Crossville, Tennessee and presenting a workshop & lecture for the Cumberland County Piecemakers. I am planning to bring Mr Lullie along and do a little sightseeing while we are there. I really have enjoyed places like Knoxville, Tennessee, and Cullman Alabama, and I am especially looking forward to having some Biscuits & Sausage gravy again whenever possible...! Have to keep up my strength.

Knoxville here we come

This is my quilt "Colorplay 8". It is one of the quilts which led to my Colorplay workshop, which I will be teaching at AQS Knoxville the week of July 21st. Students will create their own art quilt tops using my "spontaneous Explorations in color" methods. I bring the color wheels, and ALL of the pre-fused fabric for the backgrounds & the "strips & chips". The students will recieve a demo, several examples, and some guildelines; and we will PLAY! Hope to see you there [I will be teaching several other workshops also; including "Fiesta Floribunda" & Tangerine Tropicale"; still room in the classes; may have to sign up at the show]

I think registration is closed soon, but I have room in my classes for Show sign ups; (May have to contact AQS or myself by email to confirm this)
I really want to get this blog updated; so here are some of my new quilts! Above is a smaller quilt from hand-dyed silk called "Solar Flare I"' Below is my "Paducah" quilt called "Rose Mandala I" - a detail, and full image...
