Kathleen Moorhead Johnson began quilting in 1984.  She started teaching in 1986 after learning how to machine quilt using Harriet Hargrave's techniques.  She loves techniques that make quilting faster and easier for her students and enjoys the instant success that's achieved.  She puts her students at ease in a warm, friendly atmosphere. 

Kathy began designing her own quilts soon after learning to quilt.  With her fabulous eye for color and design she has won many awards and accolades.  Some of her quilts have been included in Great American Quilts 2000 by Oxmoor House Publishing, Smashing Sets by Margaret Miller, and AQS Quilt Art Engagement Calendars 1997 and 2007.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoy Kathy's designs.

From Margaret:

"What a delight it was to have Kathy Johnson sign up to be in the first group of AnglePlay Certified Instructor trainees!  I had known Kathy as a student and as a friend, and to have her apply her considerable design and teaching skill to spreading the word (and techniques) of AnglePlay was gratifying!
      She is a dedicated teacher and a consummate professional; her creativity when  designing quilts in multiple design arenas (curves to points and everything in between!) is definitely a gift to all quiltmakers who seek a refreshing change in the look of their work.  The amount of work she accomplishes - both piecing and quilting - is inspiring indeed, and offers a glimpse of someone who is truly dedicated to her art.
       Her craftsmanship is top notch, and she is not afraid of color;  she willingly and painlessly helps students develop confidence in both areas.   She is at home designing quilts on the computer or on the design wall, and is so willing to share what she knows with anyone who asks her.
     All of this skill is shot throughout with her marvelous sense of humor, and her frequent laughter that brightens the day for anyone crossing her path . . .How grateful I am that she is one of the first AnglePlay Certified Instructors!  
      Looking forward to the next time our paths cross,  Margaret J. Miller"
