A little about me…
Loving romance and all it entails naturally leads me to pretty, tasteful and romantic fabrics. I’m inspired to design patterns and quilts with the same charm and grace as the fabric designer. I love colors of all hues and floral prints are my favorite but once in a while I break out of my box and play with brights and batiks.

Lecturing and teaching workshops is all joy to me. I love spending time with other quilters and sharing our quilting passion. Making quilts and designing patterns over the past 18 years I have been able to produce quilts of varying ability and challenges. I truly enjoy teaching and watching other quilters explore color, patterns and design and consider myself blessed to see their finished beauty.

Like most quilters, I’m usually working on about 5-10 projects which teaches me as well…Thank you for considering me. Please take a look at my website Ladylike Designs and contact me at bevquiltlady @ aol.com to come teach for you! Click here to download my teaching brochure – Download

I teach classes regularly (here’s my class list) and if you are in the Laguna Hills area of California (between Los Angeles and San Diego) please check my website calendar for the best class for you.

Jaci Lawson

Home: Dover, New Hampshire

When I was 9 years old, I saw a beautiful, knitted bikini in a magazine. My first thought was “I can do that!” I have been creating the impossible and the improbable ever since and luckily most turn out better than that bathing suit!

Currently working on a beer bottle garden edging and an outdoor pantry featuring a repurposed wooden boat, my projects tend to ensnare husband, family and unsuspecting friends.

An art quilter from Dover, NH, I have been quilting since 2007 and I made my first art quilt in 2009. My art quilts have since been shown in local art exhibits, local and regional quilt shows and a local craftsmen outlet.

I have also designed original purse and craft projects and my original luggage tag design was published in Quilts and More, Summer 2011. Recently, I have had two cathedral window projects published in The Quilt Pattern Magazine.

I have given demos on art quilting techniques at our local quilt show. I have also given demonstrations on fabric collage and other art techniques including a 3-D challenge at the Cocheco Quilt Guild Art Bee.

I am a member of the Cocheco Quilt Guild as well as a founding member and leader of the Cocheco Quilter’s Guild Art Bee. I have received a many winning ribbons in the annual Cocheco Quilt Guild Challenge Contest and recently I have been designing the annual mystery quilt for the guild.

After majoring in everything from political science to sociology, I eventually received a BA in English from the University of NH (2005).
My greatest achievement is living happily with the same husband for over 30 years despite dragging him into every home and garden project I could dream up. He lives in fear of 5 words, “Honey, I have an idea!” We have 3 extraordinary daughters, and 3 exceptional grandchildren. Truly, the Lord has been good to us and blessed our home.
