This book includes 11 new projects, all of
which are designed to increase your quiltmaking confidence. Because
of Kathy's experience as a quilting teacher, she knows the questions
that you want answers to, and explains techniques in a step-by-step,
easy-to-read style. This book includes lots of explanatory photographic
details, so it is almost like having Kathy in your sewing room with
Kathy cannot remember when she wasn't sewing. Starting with doll
clothes and graduating to her own clothes by the time she was ten.
Kathy has had a love affair with fabric that has never diminished.
Since meeting her first quilt in 1991, Kathy has moved away from
clothing almost entirely and has devoted her creative endeavors
to the making of quilts. In fact, on any given day, she can be found
thinking about her next quilt, shopping for fabric for a new quilt,
stitching on a current quilt, writing about quiltmaking techniques,
designing patterns for quilters, sketching ideas for another appliqué
quilt, taking a workshop to learn a new technique, attending a guild
meeting, lecturing or teaching quiltmaking techniques. In fact,
her husband does not believe she does anything but make quilts.
He might just be right!
Kathy lives in Overland Park, Kansas with Rich, her husband of
35 years. She and her husband have two son, Sean, 26, just returned
from two tours in Iraq and now a civilian, and Ian, 22, an actor
living in North Hollywood. Kathy and Rich also have their first
and second grandchildren, twins, born to Sean and his wife Alicia.
