Cover Art

I am so excited that my art is on the cover of Sew Somerset summer 2014 issue.
I saw it on-line a day before my copy of the magazine arrived, I sat there stunned and smiling.
The article looks amazing.
And a few pages earlier, is my bridal shoppe dress quilts article.

Visit your local bookstore or craft store to get a copy or order online.

Published – American Quilter


I am honored to have my art quilt process featured in the November 2013 issue of American Quilter. If you are a member of AQS, you can view the digital magazine now and it will be available at newsstands/bookstores soon. I encourage you to become a member of AQS and buy a copy when you see if for sale. It is packed full of inspiration! Oh, and you’ll find instructions and a pattern for making your own creative girl art quilt on page 48.

Below are the quilts I created for the article – I had so much fun making them. wpid-CPayne29-2013-09-26-19-54.jpg

Art Quilting Studio – Summer 2012


I love getting magazines with these words on the shipping label sheet.

Pick up the Summer 2012 issue of Art Quilting Studio, my quilt is on page 130. I’m thrilled that they showed the back of the quilt too.




In January, I set a goal to have a quilt published in Art Quilting Studios. I had two articles in Sew Somerset in June which was awesome but not quite my goal.


The December issue is out and I have 3 quilts featured in an article on my Creative Girl Art Quilts. The article looks great – the quilts look amazing – I’m thrilled!


I owe a huge hug and thank you to Christy Tomlinson for the inspiration I gained in her She Art Workshop. I met my goal and I rediscovered my passion for art quilts.

Go pick up the December issue of Art Quilting Studio; it’s full of colorful and creative content that will inspire you to quilt.


The July/August issue of Somerset Studio arrived in my mail box today. My article and photos of my corsets are on page 76! I’m giddy!
