Rhoda Cohen: Rhoda is still quilting and exhibiting on the east coast of the United States.  You can view her most recent work on her website.

Elaine Sparlin:  Elaine was such a talented quilter from Kansas who was widely known for her story quilts, but sadly she passed away in February of 2012.

Helen Kelley was inducted into the Quilter’s Hall of Fame on July 19, 2008, in Marion, IN.  Click on her name to see her speak after receiving her honor.  Helen’s information may be found on her site at  Helen passed away in September of 2008.

Steve Schutt was trained in the fine arts with a BA Degree in art education. For years he supplemented his teaching income making and selling quilts, woven baskets, intricately dyed Ukrainian eggs, detailed realistic gingerbread houses and performing and making puppets. He credits his maternal Grandmother for teaching him how to sew. Steve specializes in making teddy bears!

Linda Cantrell made her first quilt in 1977. She is a quilt show judge and teaches nationally.  I first fell in love with Linda’s quilts with her famous quilt “THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS,”  You can see it on her website if you click here.

Ami Simms: You’re not a real quilter if you don’t know who Ami Simms is! Ami is the gal behind the Alzheimer Art Quilt Initiative, and my first quilting buddy from way back in the early 1980’s.  Ami lives in Michigan, where she continues to make quilts and teach both in her home studio and all over the world.

who loved to grow the beautiful flowers in her home greenhouse.
