Annette Ornelas

Annette Ornelas

Annette has always expressed a special interest in art and textiles. In 1991, when her husband was deployed to Desert Storm, she decided to enroll in a basic quilting course. When he returned, he was very surprised to find their house was “quilted over.” After being reassigned to Germany in 1992 and finding herself far removed from traditional quilting sources and her quilting friends, Annette explored her own quilting style. In more than a decade of teaching, she has earned a reputation for solving quilting problems creatively and putting her students at ease. She has been published in magazines here and abroad and publishes patterns through her own company, Southwind Designs. She aims to present complex-looking designs that are easy to piece, making curved designs achievable for all levels of quilters with her dimensional curved piecing. Annette lives in North Carolina with her husband, Mike, and son, Kyle.
