UQSM 2018 Featured Artist: Natalia Bonner


 






Natalia Whiting Bonner has enjoyed piecing quilt tops for more than twenty years. She learned how to quilt on her conventional home machine. She felt good about it, but decided that if she really wanted to take her quilting to the next level, she needed to invest in a longarm machine. In 2007, when she was pregnant with her daughter, she got the crazy idea to quit her job as a dental assistant and become a longarm quilter. Without really knowing what a longarm machine was, she spent a day at a longarm dealer’s shop and walked out after purchasing a Gammill machine. Natalia’s passion for quilting and being creative has grown each day since. Whether it’s working on an intense show quilt or a simple baby quilt, Natalia has become a real quilting addict. She teaches at quilt guilds and shows, including Road to California and QuiltCon East, and has filmed TV shows with Nancy Zieman and Jodie Davis. 

















She has won numerous awards for her work and has been featured on Moda Bake Shop, in Quiltmaker Magazine and American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, and in books such as Fresh Fabric Treats, Modern Blocks and Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs, Modern Quilts From the Blogging Universe.











Natalia is the author of Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting, Next Steps in Machine Quilting and Visual Guide to Free-Motion Quilting Feathers co-author of Modern One-Block Quilts & Cabin Fever:20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts. Natalia is a Gammill Quilt Artist, Moda Fabric Designer and Crafty Instructor.

I began sewing at the age of 8 and have always loves to create my own projects. My Mom and Dad taught me to use my hands. Throughout my childhood, my parents let me explore all areas of creativity. I learned how to sew, embroider, crochet, knit, macrame’, tool leather, tie flies for fishing, draw, use a potters wheel, made jewelry, did beading painting, and even did some woodworking. They pretty much encouraged me to try everything. Some things I did well, a lot of other things, not so well, but thank you to my parents for letting me try it! It always seemed that whatever I tried or did, I always came back to fabric!

I have always loved the thrill of figuring out how to do something easier or faster or different to make it fit my own needs and personality. I LOVE to applique’ as well as piecing. Playing with color and touching the fabrics has always been fun for me and I feel a great sense of satisfaction creating quilts and items from my favorite medium. There is just something about fabric that makes me happy!

I purchased American Quilting, a little quilt shop that had only been open for a short time in 2004. Three years after that we had to move to another location. We bought our own space where we have now been for the last 11 years. My shop is a well-rounded shop with something for everyone. I carry several genres of fabrics, and we teach a lot of classes.

In 2006 I started my pattern company called Under the Garden Moon and I love the creating part of this business. I love to share what I create, and hope someone learns something whenever they make one of my patterns. I have grown over the years and feel like I learned to not be afraid to try something new or scary.

A new division of my pattern line is ThreaDoodlydoos. These patterns incorporate hand embroidery, mixing of textiles and fun embellishing.

I have 8 children J (haha – 4 of them married my kids), 16 grandchildren and I have been married to my cute and supportive hubby for 38 years.

I'm an architect who discovered the quilting world in 2010 in Switzerland. Like in my old job I love to design my own projects, my own quilt patterns and on the past years I had the honor to see my quilts in Exhibitions all over the country, for the International Quilt Festival in Houston (2015, 2016 and 2017), American Quilter's Society quilt weeks and also at MQX New England (2016). Since our relocation to Connecticut I also teach quilting classes and workshops to domestic machine quilters. I designed my own method to teach free motion quilting based on my artistic background. My goal with my students is to make them able to recognize the strong elements of their own quilts and use free motion quilting designs to create unique work.

I enjoy judging quilt shows and being on the other side of entering. Helen has served as President of Utah Valley Quilt Guild, as well as other board positions and she has served on the Utah Quilt Guild board for many years and the Quilt fest committee for the state guild. Many other local quilt organizations have been the recipient of her love of quilting and strong desire to further the fine art of quilting. Wife to a very supportive husband and mother of 6, and grandmother to 8, she loves gardening, cooking, and reading, and hiking.

    KATHIE BELTZ
Kathie Beltz Professional Quilter ~ Teacher ~ Judge Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor I am totally addicted to quilting, and enjoy associating with other quilters who are equally addicted. I’ve been quilting since 1995, teaching since 2004, and judging quilts since 2007. I have been fortunate that some of my quilts have won awards at shows across the country, including A Quilter’s Gathering, Home Machine Quilting Show, Images at the Lowell Quilt Festival, Machine Quilters Exposition, Machine Quilting Today Upper Midwest Show, Maine Quilts, Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, MQX Quilt Festivals, National Quilting Association, Quilting With Machines, Quiltweek Lancaster, Quiltweek Paducah, Road to California, Southern New Hampshire Quilt Festival, Vermont Quilt Festival, and World Quilt Show – New England. Several of my quilts were juried into the AQS show in Paducah in 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017, winning ribbons in 2015 and 2017. As an award-winning quilter, I lecture, give demonstrations, and teach workshops at guilds, quilt shops, and quilt shows nationally. I especially enjoy teaching beginners. In 2013, I became a Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design, Deb Tucker’s tool and technique company. The Studio 180 Design certified instruction program provides me with the opportunity to continue Deb Tucker’s tradition of excellent instruction combined with fun. Deb’s efficient techniques and her accurate tools make it easy to create beautiful quilts without a lot of fuss. In 2017, I launched Kathie Beltz Quilt Designs, my own line of companion patterns for Studio 180 Design tools. These quilt patterns are for smaller projects that look complicated but are easier to make than you may think.

Her formal training was primarily in design, drawing, and studio painting, and she spent many years as a professional calligrapher.

Kelly's passion is transforming antique quilts and linens into modern pieces of art on the longarm. She is a Handi Quilter Ambassador and was named Teacher of the Year in 2017 at UQSM in Utah. Kelly travels and teaches at shops, quilt shows and guilds in the US and Internationally.  You will find Kelly living in Lawrence, KS, with her husband Carl.

    MEGAN LEGAS
Megan's career teaching quilting began in Nebraska when she taught women to quilt to raise money to help build a church. It was also in Nebraska that she fell in love with antique quilts. ALL her quilts are hand-quilted. Megan taught for 7-8 years in Nebraska and was named as runner-up to "National Professional Quilt Teacher of the Year". She has taught at retreats in Utah and Idaho for the last 10 years. Her hand quilting is spectacular and she has won many awards for her skills. Megan believes in teaching the process of quilting rather than teaching a project. She never teaches a project, as she wants each person to have an individual quilt when they get finished. She believes in using up what you already have. She enjoys playing with blocks and techniques and coming up with new patterns and ideas. Megan has a passion for antique textiles. She loves to find and rescue old quilt blocks and tops. She then repairs and hand quilts them as the original maker might have. She was president of UVQG, and chairman for the Springville Museum of Art Quilt Show for 7 years. She has judged numerous quilt shows, and loves having her quilts judged so she can learn from the critique. Her biggest thrill of the last few years was having her quilts accepted into AQS national shows in Paducah, KY, Grand Rapids, MI., and Lancaster, PA.

Hand Quilting-Improve Your Stitch

 





My mom taught me how to sew, crochet, knit and everything else in between. As a child I made baby quilts, Barbie® clothes and crocheted chains for jump ropes, and by the time I was 12, I was making my own clothes for school. Those creations only instilled in me the desire to be creative in other areas. I made my first patchwork quilt at age 14 (which I still have, by the way). Who knew what it would lead to? My love for quilting didn’t come until some years later. I started taking quilt classes at a local quilt shop, where my love for quilting grew. My first venture into professional and original designs was with stitchery patterns for pillows and fusible web applique for tea towels. In 2008 , my love for designing and creating grew and expanded to include quilts, and in 2010 Ribbon Candy Quilt Company was born. The quilts I design are for the busy quilters in all of us, so my patterns are usually fun, fast and done. I enjoy using fusible web applique because it’s so versatile and allows me to create my own images. The Seasonal Skinnies patterns are my signature, and the flagship of Ribbon Candy Quilt Company. I have published over 100 quilt patterns and 2 books . I’ve taught at a retreats and quilt shops, including two quilting cruises to Alaska and also New England. I’ve been in a number of publications including Quiltmaker 100 Blocks, Quiltmaker magazine, American Patchwork and Quilting 2013 calendar. I’ve been featured on Moda Bake Shop and have done online video courses with Craftsy. And my most resent online course with Craft U which launched on Nov 28, 2016. I was a guess quilter on the PBS Quilting Arts 1400 series TV program in summer of 2014. I’m crazy about what I do and feel so blessed to be involved in the wonderful world of quilting!! On a more personal note: I was born and raised in central California, but have been in Utah for the past 24 years. I’m married to a super guy and have 5 amazing children and one wonderful son-in-law. And when not in my sewing studio, you can find me enjoying time with my family or indulging in my other hobbies of reading, baking, playing or shopping for more fabric. ribboncandyquiltcompany.com

    RENAE HADDADIN
Renae loves to quilt...and loves to share that passion with others. She has developed tools and techniques for piecing and quilting that have been used by many to create beautiful quilts. It thrills her to see students succeed and grow in their own quilting and piecing. Renae is always looking for new ways to challenge herself personally and professionally and believes that her physical, emotional and spiritual condition have a great impact on her quilting. Many of her quilts are entered in competitions and she has won top national awards...but her biggest thrill isn't winning. She considers the best part of quilting exploring the unlimited possibilities that the art affords and the friends that she has made along the way. Her latest endeavors have included working with INNOVA to advise in the development and testing of AutoPilot computerized system. Her experience with the AutoPilot MACH 3 is shared in the classroom in an easy to follow format. She works through from simple to complex in a sequential way that makes learning simple.

I first found my love of sewing on a treadle machine, using a phone book to be able to reach the pedal. I pull from years of experience: from making my own school clothing in third grade, working in a jacket factory, a restaurant owner, computer programmer, accountant and now longarm quilter to combine techniques that apply across that experience to identify and solve problems (sometimes with some McGuyvering!) and increase your productivity. In all my classes, the goal is to give you an advantage: consistently square quilts, binding using the longarm, shortening your learning curve on pantos and rulers, and avoiding problems in quilt tops and backs in preparation for longarming.

    SWAN SHERIDAN
Swan lives and works with her family in her studio in Corona de Tucson surrounded by our beautiful Arizona desert. She has been quilting since 2002, when she discovered that fabric and thread were her creative outlets and with them in hand she might become the artist she had always wanted to be. Now hardly a day goes by that she is not creating new designs, choosing fabric, or taking up the needle to make something that wants to escape her head. Applique is her true quilty love, but Swan has an affection for all methods and no desire to be limited. Free motion quilting has added excitement to her work in the last several years and allows Swan to realize those visions she has in her imagination to the fullest. To find out more about what Swan up to next, visit www.SwanAmity.com and enjoy her passion for quilting the world.
