From 1986 to 2006, I was Editor in Chief of QUILT magazine. I retired in 2006 to devote more time to my creative side. Since then I have designed and made quilts for several major quilting fabric manufacturers and for leading quilting magazines: For The Love of Quilting, The Quilter, Fabric Trends, Quilter's World, McCalls Quilts, and others. I am really enjoying this new creative side of my life. I teach quilting workshops for guilds throughout the southeast and have recently co-authored a book with my sister, Janet Houts. Our book is set for early January release. The book title is: Circle of Nine. Our publisher is Landauer Publishing Corp. You can buy it from your favorite quilt shop or order from Amazon.
