Dyed And Gone To Heaven

Lisa Walton- Artist Statement

I have been quilting for over 25 years. Starting with traditional quilt techniques and designs I gradually developed the urge to break the rules.

My fascinations with dyeing about 15 years ago began with a gift of hand dyed dyed fabrics which I then tried to replicate with varying degrees of success. Trial and error over the next few years developed my design techniques which were ultimately refined when I attended Carol Soderlund's Colour Mixing for Dyers class in USA.

I now share the dyeing with my husband Peter who enjoys the precision of formula based dyeing while I am able to concentrate on more serendipitous and experimental pieces. Our hand dyed fabrics and quilt kits are available though this website and sent all over the world.

My obsession of beaded embellishment for quilts has developed rapidly and I am now having a wonderful time sharing these skills and enticing others to become as obsessed as me. 

In 2010 I was awarded the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship for Quilting Teachers by the International Quilt Association in Houston USA. 

In 2013 my first book - Beautiful Building Block Quilts was published by C&T Publishing and in 2014 & 2015 I self published my own ebooks on Amazon. I love the freedom of self publishing.

I love sharing what I do and enjoy everything that I learn from my students as well. I travel widely and teach all over the world and happy to discuss teaching in your area.
