Creating Art Quilts with Panels • Joyce Hughes

What a great kick off to 2021 where we start with a new panel challenge! Joyce's first book, Creating Art Quilts with Panels, is a topic that opens us up to the possibilities of panels.


ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Joyce is an award-winning, self-taught quilter, fiber artist and author. Her first quilt was a tee-shirt quilt, which she enjoyed making, but felt limited in the ability to express her artistic capabilities. Within several months, she began to design pictorial landscape quilts using raw edge applique, thread painting, and a variety of embellishments. Never knowing the “rules” she broke a lot of them, but with exciting results!

Amazingly, her first art quilt, “Mother’s Day”, was entered into a National Show and won a Blue Ribbon. This has led to numerous awards, recognitions and opportunities in the quilting world. Several proud accomplishments for Joyce are: “McCall’s Quilt Designer 2012 – Professional Category” for McCall’s Quilting Magazine; also an endorser and sample maker for Northcott and Timeless Treasures fabrics, and Ambassador for Mettler Threads and Brother Sewing.

Currently, Joyce has a second book, “Thread Paint as you Go” (due for release November, 2020) focusing on raw edge applique and thread painting to add shading, highlighting and definition. Joyce’s first book is “Creating Art Quilts with Panels” where she works with fabric panels to create dimension and texture with threads and embellishments—creating a style of her own!  Joyce loves to teach and share her tips. One of her greatest accomplishments is when a student creates their own Art work following Joyce’s technique of Dimensional Thread Painting!
