About the Authors:
Tammy Silvers has been quilting since 1991. She has
taught at a variety of fabric shops as well as local county
Parks and Recreation facilities. Like any quilters enjoys
working with most any fabric, however, she prefers batiks,
bold prints and chicken prints: "If it clucks, it goes
in a quilt!" Having a background in art and literature,
Tammy looks for ways to use 'words' in her work, be it in
the fabric itself or by adding them to the piece. Tammy is
a Georgia native and currently lives in Marietta with her
husband, children, two dogs and two cats.
Julia LaBauve began quilting in 199, one of Tammy's
many students. She prefers to work with fabrics that display
bold motifs and intense colors such as batiks and ethnic
fabrics, and also likes fabrics with lots of shine and metallic
accents. With a background in science, Julia likes designs
that are graphic and precise, both in the fabric and in the
final piece. Originally from Puerto Rico, she now lives in
Kennesaw, Georgia, with her husband and one dog.
In 2006 Tammy and Julia started Outside the Line Designs.
Their designs are regularly published in a variety of quilt
