"Tammie is a lovely, energetic & wildly creative woman! I thought quilted photography would be intense and difficult, but with amazing results....only half of that is true, her technique is simple, clear and it does yield amazing results! I've gotten many, many compliments on my quilted photo from women who have quilted far longer than I have! It is so much fun watching the images appear almost like magic!"
Alex D., Manhattan Beach, CA

"I've been quilting for 3 years and have never seen anything like your quilts, and I just had to take your class! It looked difficult but in fact is so easy and fun! It was like paint by number but with fabric. Thanks for bringing these techniques to us."
Debbi S., Los Angeles, CA

"I learned more about color value in the one day class than at Art School! Tammie's instructions were great! I watched my photo come to life in the class. I will treasure my quilt for a lifetime!"
Darlen L., Acton, CA

"Tammie, I did enjoy your class very much. I was a little apprehensive at first, but the more I worked on it and started sewing, it all fell into place. My husband couldn't believe what he was seeing! Everyone that comes over keeps asking " How did you do that?!"
Peggy F., Anaheim, CA

"I learned so much about the color value of fabrics! I now use this knowledge on other quilt blocks and wearable art. What a valuable addition to my quilting education! Thank You."
Annette B., Los Angeles, CA

"My daughter Rosie (14 years old), made a Quilted Photo of a dolphin and entered it in the Los Angeles County Fair. She won a BLUE RIBBON and is very proud of her quilt! Thank you"
Katherine R., Pasadena, CA

"I love this technique! Simple to sew and so rewarding!"
Marlene P., Santa Barbara, CA

"Your class was the best I have attended! Everyone placing squares of fabric, critiquing colors, pressing and sewing. Then the ooooohs and aaaahs; as masterpieces appeared, as if by magic. Everyone who has seen the Quilted Photo of my grandchild cannot believe it was possible to achieve! When they cannot figure it out, they look across the room at the mirror opposite of it and GASP. Thank you Tammie for a great innovative creation."
Carolyn V., Sierra Madre, CA

"I loved your Quilted Photo™ class. It is such a great sewing idea, as well as easy. I loved it and so did my family. I gave my mom the quilt for mother's day and she loved it. Your quilt idea helped me enjoy sewing and it is my motivation to continue to learn more techniques and ideas. Thank you"
Nicole C., Los Angeles, CA
