This lecture/trunk show is the journey Kathy has taken from beginning the joy of quilt making (very humbly, indeed) to the present.
Kathy Delaney has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in art education from the University of Arizona and loves teaching quilt making techniques. She has been absorbing everything she can that is quilt related since she began in 1991.
Kathy regularly develops new workshops and classes. Kathy has also taken the 2-day seminar offered by NQA on being a quilt show judge and has had experience judging quilt shows in Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas.
Kathy belongs to the Blue Valley Quilters Guild, Olathe Quilters Guild, American Quilters Society, International Quilters Association, The Applique Society, The Heartland Quilt Network and the Kansas Quilters Organization. She has worked and taught at Prairie Point Quilts in Shawnee, KS since it's opening in June of 1995.
Kathy was invited in 1998 to participate in the 1999 Pilgrim and Roy Challenge to benefit the Museum of the American Quilters Society in Paducah, Kentucky.
Kathy's quilts have been juried into major quilt shows and won awards. Articles about Kathy and her quilts have appeared in multiple magazines and books. Kathy has authored multiple books, including Hearts and Flowers-Applique from Start to Finish, A Heartland Album The Basics - An Easy Guide to Beginning Quiltmaking, Horn of Plenty for a New Century, Patterns of History - The Challenge Winners Beyond the Basics - A Potpourri of Quiltmaking Techniques, and Pots de Fleurs - A Garden of Applique Techniques. Kathy designs patterns for piecing and applique under the name of Fabric Crayon Designs.
Kathy considers her experience filming an episode of Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson (episode #916) to be one of the most fun experiences she has had since beginning her teaching career in 1996.
