Panel Play with Joyce Hughes

Joyce is an Award Winning self-taught quilter and fiber artist. 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. One Proud accomplishments of Joyce’s, in October, 2012, she was selected as “McCall’s Quilt Designer 2012 – Professional Category” for McCall’s Quilting Magazine.

Currently, Joyce has a new book, “Creating Art Quilts with Panels” –working 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!
