Bonham -- Alice Wilhoit’s adventure in quilting began some thirty years ago when she took a class at a local quilt shop and found herself immersed in a world of infinite possibilities with fabric.  Alice has never looked back.  She has produced over 250 quilts, many of her own design. Now she teaches in Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, travels across the U.S. and Canada, as well as teaching on many cruises. She designs and publishes piecing, applique and embroidery patterns, has won many competitions with these patterns and celebrated with students and customers as they win ribbons with those patterns. Her patterns are sold in quilt shops around the country.  The American Quilter’s Society published her book, Crazy Patchwork, in 2009.

In 2016 (American Quilter’s Society) released a video class, Lily’s Flowers.  This class covers many time-saving tips and techniques and includes Crazy Patchwork, applique, and embroidery stitches. Alice Wilhoit teaches a wide range of quilting techniques from Beginner’s through Expert, with a special focus on a dozen different applique techniques.  Check out her website: alicewilhoit.com.

Alice is married to Bill, has six daughters, a son, seven grandchildren, seven great-grandsons and two great-granddaughters. She and Bill live in McKinney, Texas along with their Scottish terrier mix, Lucy, who is the queen of the household.
