Deb Atchison, an experienced educator, and quilter enjoys leading participants through the process of creating beautiful works of art with fabric! Teaching is Debra's lifelong career and quilting is her passion. Combining them both...her dream job!

Several years back when Deb was searching online for a map quilt pattern to make for her husband’s birthday she stumbled onto Shannon Brinkley’s work called Scrappy Applique! She saw her map and globe quilts and immediately fell in love! Deb learned this process from Shannon and has been hooked on it ever since. In the photo to the left, Deb used a real map as her pattern and added in prints of fabric that were special to the places where she and her husband lived and traveled together. Needless to say, her husband fell in love with the quilt! When she gave it to him, he just sat for a long time looking at each continent, admiring the workmanship with the largest smile on his face. As a lover of gift-giving…..it was the best present she could have received in return for all her handiwork! Since then, Deb has become a Scrappy Applique Certified Teacher and loves helping others create their own beautiful works of art!
