My Bio

Hi my name is Deon Lewis.  I am a computer technician for a local internet provider.  I love everything to do with quilting any kind of fiber.  I am married and have two teenage sons.   When Im not working or hauling my sons around to their many activities, Im sewing, quilting or painting fabric.  My grandmother was a seamstress and I have loved sewing since I was a child.  My grandmother taught me how to quilt at around 12.  For the longest, I only did traditional quilting by hand.  Then I discovered machine quilting and I fell in love with how fast I could complete a quilt and start putting together my next piece.  I love hand dyed fabrics and batiks.  I absolutely fell in love when I saw my first issue of Quilting Arts Magazine.  I have painted some of my own fabric and I am just beginning to experiment with my own designs.  In the past, I have used mostly patterns but I never follow rules well so I usually end up doing my own thing.
