Help us welcome back one of our favorite teachers, Alice Wilhoit! She's joining us for a one-day class on her gorgeous Fireworks Quilt. A class you do not want to miss!
Most of us have had the experience of becoming “all out excited” over a new hobby or activity only to cool once the “new” has worn off. Usually this leads to an unfinished project, or projects if the excitement was really great, being relegated to a forgotten box on some closet shelf. That was Alice’s story until some 20 years ago when she took a class at a local quilt shop and found herself immersed in a world of infinite possibilities with fabrics. She has never “cooled” or even looked back. In this time, Alice has produced something over 250 quilts, many of them of her own design. Many have won awards in quilt shows and festivals. Her designs and patterns are sold in quilt shops around the country.
In 1987, Alice began instructing, and soon coordinated all teaching at the leading quilt shop in her area. Now she teaches in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. She travels to teach across the U. S., Canada and has taught on many cruises.
Although she designs both traditional pieced and appliquéd quilts, her true love, other than her husband, children and grandchildren, is teaching others the art of appliqué, crazy patchwork and just about any kind of handwork. Through her years of experience she has developed many labor and time saving techniques to aid in the preparation portion of appliqué. These she happily shares! One of her greatest joys is seeing someone develop into a dedicated quilter regardless of the style or method chosen.
