Most of us have had the experience of becoming all-out excited over a new hobby or activity only to cool once the new has worn off. Usually this leads to an unfinished project, or projects if the excitement was really great, being relegated to a forgotten box on some closet shelf. That was Alice’s story until 1987 when she took a class at the local quilt shop and found herself immersed in a world of infinite possibilities with fabrics. She has never cooled or even looked back. Alice has produced over 250 quilts, many of them of her own design. Many have won awards in quilt shows. Her patterns are sold in quilt shops around the country. In 1988, Alice began instructing, and soon coordinated all teaching at the leading quilt shop in her area. Now she teaches in many shops in the Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex as well as in other areas of the state, other states, in Canada, and on cruises. Although she designs both traditional pieced and appliqué quilts, her true love, is teaching others the art of needlework in crazy patchwork and appliqué. One of her greatest joys is seeing someone develop into a dedicated quilter regardless of the style or method chosen. Alice is married to Bill, has six daughters, one son, six grandchildren, and two great-grandsons. She and Bill live in McKinney, Texas, along with their Shih Tzu, Molly.
