should be fun!"
That's the philosophy of quilt teacher
Lucy A. Fazely. "If you're having fun, you'll make more quilts
and quilting will be a hobby that will give you pleasure throughout
your entire life."
An independent quilt designer, Lucy added author and fabric designer to her list of accomplishments with the 2002 release of Quilt Style and the 2003 release of her first fabric line, Watercolor by Number.
She has been a contributing writer for The Quilter
Magazine (formerly Traditional Quilter) since 1999 and
has been a regular contributor to Quilter's World (formerly Quick & Easy Quilting and Quilt World) since 1994.
She's had eight booklets of quilting designs published by House
of White Birches and All American Crafts. Since 1999 she has self-published
designs as Lucy Fazely Designs. Her designs have been featured
in Better Homes & Gardens Special Interest Publications, Quilting for Christmas, Quick & Easy Patchwork, McCall's Quilting, McCall's Quick Quilts, Quilting
Ideas, Quilt Almanac, Miniature Quilts, Quilting
Today, Arts & Crafts Magazine, Fabric Trends and Quilts & Coordinates. Her work has also been included
in fifteen quilting books including Fun Photo-Quilts & Crafts by Ami Simms (Mallery Press, 1999) and Strip Quilting Projects
9 by Kaye Wood (Kaye Wood Publishing, 1993).
Lucy has been teaching/lecturing on a variety of
quilting techniques since 1993 and is currently teaching coast to
coast. Working with fabric, batting, thread and template manufacturers,
Lucy designs quilts for national and international quilt trade shows
and has designed many free pattern handouts for the fabric manufacturers.
Her quilts have traveled around the United States, to Europe, Asia,
Japan, Australia and New Zealand representing RJR Fashion Fabrics, Princess Mirah
Design Bali Batiks, Northcott, Kaufman Fine Fabrics, P&B
Textiles, David Textiles, Sew/Fit Templates, Coats & Clark,
and Kreinik Metallic Threads. Her distinctive style is easily recognized
by many in the quilt world.
Lucy often writes the directions and includes illustrations
for the quilts she designs for publications. Her ability to break
down even complex patterns into simple terms everyone can understand
is a skill her students appreciate. Her humorous and easygoing style
creates an atmosphere of fun in which to learn.
Lucy is currently switching to a career in screenwriting. She has completed the coursework for a Screenwriting Certificate through UCLA Extension – an online program.
Lucy's son, Jeremy, is a proud member of the US Air Force.
Jeremy and Lucy
"Her Highness Lady Jane Burns"
|Lady was adopted in July 2002 from the local shelter. She is a Basset Hound/Shepard mix - or so we've been told. There isn't much question about the Basset Hound part when you see her running on those short little legs! She is extremely gentle, smart and very good natured.
