He is currently the co-host of The Quilt Show, an internet-based show for quilters that also features Alex Anderson, C&T Publishing author and former host of HGTV's Simply Quilts. Ricky began designing and making quilts in 1991. In 2002, he was selected as one of The Thirty Most Distinguished Quilters in the World. He maintains an international schedule of teaching and speaking engagements, presents Ricky Tims' Super Quilt Seminars in select cities throughout the United States, and holds week-long retreats in La Veta, a tiny mountain town located in south-central Colorado. He and life partner Justin Shults own Tims Art Quilt Studio and Gallery, a space dedicated to promoting quilting as art.Ricky is passionate about quilting, and is delighted to share his experience and enthusiasm with quilters of every level of expertise.
