Kathie Alyce

Kathie Alyce

Kathie Alyce is an award-winning contemporary quiltmaker who has been working with fabric for as long as she can remember. Her earliest memories of handwork go back to around the age of seven or eight when she began doing embroidery work. She continued to create all her life, moving from stitchery to drawing and art classes in her youth. Kathie went on to learn the traditional craft and sewing arts including dressmaking, knitting, weaving, and dyeing, along with working in charcoals and pastels. In 1985, she chose traditional quilting as her launch pad, and began creating her own work with a bold, contemporary use of fabric and color.

Kathie found herself in fabric as her history in crafts and the opportunity to express her emotions in art. Modern day quilting offered the chance to create and be artistic with fabric once the basics of construction are learned.

Kathie can now be found teaching, lecturing, designing curved templates, and publishing patterns. Her work is featured in “FFB Template Quilts” and “More with Kathie Alyce’s Templates.” Both video seqments can be seen at

You can learn more about Kathie on her website,, or contact her directly at to purchase the FFB template.
