Contact Katie

Hi, I'm Katie! Quilting engages my senses and taps into my creative core while allowing me to create works of art that I can wrap around my loved ones. This combination of beauty and functionality continues to excite me quilt after quilt. Scrappy Applique takes the pressure off piecing perfectly, allowing us to explore color and pattern in a fun and easy way. I love how the templates give just enough direction to give you confidence in your finished quilt, but freedom to create a quilt that is as unique as you are. I'm truly passionate about coming alongside other quilters to help you explore your creativity. I look forward to connecting with you virtually or in person!

Hello! I’m Deb Atchison an experienced educator, international technology consultant, and quilter that enjoys leading students of all ages through the process of creating beautiful works of art with fabric! Teaching is my lifelong career and quilting is my passion. Combining them both...my dream job! What I love about Scrappy Appliqué is that your personality can become a part of the quilt you are creating. It’s simple to do but creates a very unique piece. We could all do the same pattern, but each one of them would turn out uniquely different! I just love that! I look forward to creating alongside you in either a face-to-face workshop or via Zoom for virtual classes.

Contact Nico

Hi, I’m Nico. The smartest thing I did when we moved from Germany to Ann Arbor, Michigan in 2015 was to become a member of my local quilt guild. I fell in love with all things quilts and quilters — deeply! Quilters are the most delightful people I’ve ever met. I am a color nerd by birth and after taking a gazillion quilt classes, the natural next step was to become a quilt teacher myself. Now I am certified to teach both Color Confidence and Scrappy Appliqué, and buzzing with joy to share my enthusiasm with my favorite folks; here in the US, and from early 2023 on, I’ll be teaching in Europe (in English or German). Let’s demystify color to make you finally feel comfortable with your fabric pulls. And let me show you Scrappy Appliqué if you love techniques that you can pick up in a blink and that bring you stunning results in no time. My special passion is using it to make memory quilts — ask me about it!

Color Confidence

One of the common struggles faced by quilters is working with color. Most quilters haven’t taken a ton of art classes and, in turn, often lack confidence in their color sense, which makes fabric selection tricky! We get in color ruts, going back to the same few colors over and over, or we only feel comfortable making quilts from a kit, jelly roll, or a single fabric collection. Fortunately having an “eye for color” is not just something you are born with — it is something you can develop!

Hi, I'm Lois. I have been making quilts for years. I particularly enjoy grabbing fabric from my stash and just sitting down to sew. Color Confidence has helped me see and identify more details of color. I see things I never noticed before!  In my classes, we will learn to identify which colors work together and why, making it a lot more fun to pick out fabrics for your quilts. I offer programs and workshops via Zoom. I am happy to work with quilt shops and guilds.

Contact Debbie

Hi, I’m Debbie: artist, quilter, teacher. For years I’ve been making as if life depends on it—which to me it does. Mosaics, watercolors, and wood crafts have given way to the soft mosaics of quilting. In making art, I sense the legacy of my family’s generations–a quiltmaker, a steelworker, farmers–people who worked with tools to create durable, useful, and even beautiful items for their communities. I am a teacher by trade, with successful experience in remote teaching. So do not fear the virtual program or workshop, though I also teach in-person. If I can engage 10-year-olds to enjoy learning math virtually, I assure you that we will have fun in my classes! My approach to teaching is to share techniques and skills, and then to guide your intuition and get out of the way so you can create!

Hello! I’m Janie, teacher, speaker, and pattern designer behind MakerJayne where I share my passion for Color and English paper piecing. As a teacher, my goal is to help my students build confidence in their creative abilities and help them develop and trust their unique intuition for color. I believe fabric selection should be fun and exciting - not frustrating or overwhelming - and with some simple tools, it can become the most enjoyable part of the whole quilt-making process. I live in rural Colorado on an early 20th-century homestead with my husband, growing an organic garden, and raising goats and chickens. I offer color programs and a range of workshops virtually via Zoom, so quilt guilds can collaborate with me from anywhere. I look forward to connecting with you! Contact me for your next guild event.

Hello, I’m Tina Miranda. I am a quilt designer, teacher, and specialist in simplifying the process of choosing colors and fabrics for quilters. I’ve enjoyed a professional career focused on music teaching for K-5 students, and those at the university level. Throughout that time, I’ve gained over 20 years of quilting experience, and still enjoy the process of choosing fabrics and color combinations for my quilts. It’s my favorite part of the quilting process! I love sharing about ways to simplify a fabric pull for any pattern, and support quilters with all levels of experience as they gain confidence using color principles and tools to enhance their creative choices. I enjoy traveling, and spending time with my rescue dog Marty McFly. I specialize in online presentations, as well as in-person events, and most of all enjoy connecting with quilters and sharing our amazing craft!
