We will explore where inspiration comes from. Shapes and sizes and color combos with a few funny stories along the way and numerous quilts to be shared.
Second only to her love for her small family, quilting and food are Janice’s two passions. She has worked as a food journalist, restaurant critic, waitress and a cook. She owned a catering company and recently retired from her pimento cheese farmers market business. She was once crowned Apple Pie Baking Princess, was called the Hamburger Queen, and is known around town as the Pimento Cheese Goddess. She has been quilting since 1995. Always a bit out of the box, Janice learned the American tradition of quilting while living in Australia.
Then a move to the UK afforded her the opportunity to take the esteemed City & Guilds quilting course, where classic fundamental techniques were emphasized. With her roots in traditional quilting, Janice quickly applied the classic techniques to her own creations. She went off in two – maybe three tangents – food, story and felted wool applique quilts. Her wool and embellished quilt entitled “Home” earned a Ribbon of Merit for Surface Design and Embellishments from the National Quilt Association.
She has lectured and taught wool applique and embellishments and ice dyeing for the past 5 years. In 2019 she attended the National Quilting Symposium in Auckland, New Zealand where she took a 6-day Indigo dyeing class from Jane Callander. Always anxious to learn, most recently Janice enrolled in a 5-month modern quilting class with Maria Shell.
