Author Biography

Joyce Hughes is an award-winning quilter, McCall’s Quilting Quilt Design Star, and fabric industry consultant. A self-taught fiber artist, she has single-handedly elevated printed panels to quilt art. Her very first art quilt won a blue ribbon when it was entered into competition, an honor that has since led to dozens of awards, recognitions and opportunities in the quilting world. Joyce continues to create and design one-of-a-kind quilts and handbags, while maintaining an active schedule of lectures and workshops teaching her designing and quilting techniques.
