About the Author

Kathie Alyce is an award-winning contemporary quiltmaker who has been working with fabric for as long as she can remember. Her earliest memories of handwork go back to around the age of seven or eight when she began doing embroidery work. She continued to create all her life, moving from stitchery to drawing and art classes in her youth. She went on to learn all the traditional craft and sewing arts including dressmaking, knitting, weaving, and dyeing, along with working in charcoals and pastels. In 1985, she moved on to traditional quilting. With that as her launching pad, she went on to create her own work with a bold, contemporary use of fabric and color.

Kathie found herself in fabric. It was the perfect combination of her history in crafts and the opportunity to express her emotions in art. Modern day quilting offered the chance to create and be artistic with fabric once the basics of construction were learned.

Now you can find her teaching, lecturing, designing curved templates, and publishing patterns. In addition, Kathie is featured online at www.quilterstv.com in two video segments, “FFB Template Quilts” and “More with Kathie Alyce’s Templates.”
