bdieges designs

Although I have been playing with fabrics and threads since childhood, I did not make my first quilt until 1969. By 1982 quilting had become my passion. I have had several years of in-depth study of quilt history, design and techniques with some very traditional and non-traditional quilt teachers. One of my quilts won an Honorable Mention at the American Quilt Society in Paducah, KY and my Snow Crystals quilt was the cover quilt for Quilter's Newsletter 1999.  I have had numerous patterns and books published. My book "A Thread Runs Through It," is based on my one-woman play, which was presented to many guilds across the United States from California to Florida and Oregon to Alaska. My website also keeps me busy, where for almost 19 years I have been presenting an Appliqué Block of the Month.
