About Judy

I became interested in quilting in 1976 while completing a  degree in Home Economics in the California State College system. Teaching and judging took me on visits to 48 states,  6 Canadian provinces.  Also several times in Japan, Australia, Scotland, New Zealand and England.

My work was awarded prizes at Houston Quilt Festival, Pacific International Quilt Festival, Quilt National, Visions, Road to California, and other shows.

MARINERS COMPASS QUILTS is the topic of books published by C&T Publishing.  Available at ctpub.com and other online book sellers.

My family lived for 30 years in the Los Angeles area but moved in 1996 to Sebastopol, 50 miles north of San Francisco. I retired from the active teaching in 2010, but I still participate in quilt guilds in the Santa Rosa area, and exhibit with Art Quilt groups in the local galleries
