About the Author

After studying fine art in college, Rose Hughes joined the corporate world for more than 20 years, but she was never far from her art. While photography played a key role, it was quilting and working in fabric that captured her heart in 1991. Rose has been teaching her art form since 1996, and she has appeared on Simply Quilts. She currently teaches workshops nationally in quilt construction, embellishment mehtods and using color.

Many of Rose's quilts have been accepted in juried exhibitins nationwide, and her works are included in numerous corporate and private art collections. She is active in the quilt-art community and is the founder of Quilts on the Wall: Fiber Artists in Southern California. She is also a professional member of Studio Art Quilt Association.
