Meet My Friend, Jody Houghton!


Jody Houghton's illustrations and writings have warmed the hearts of dedicated gift buyers for over twenty years. Her down-to-earth point of view and unique artistic style is attributed to the longevity of her successful home-based business. Drawing on her personal life experiences, spiritual values, in creating her work, Jody's positive and encouraging writing style inspires her readers to celebrate life each and every moment. Her artistic expression reveals a sense of whimsy with light-hearted humor and joy. She is the proud creater of the characters

 Faith, Hope, & Charity that are featured in many of her designs.

Jody's is an amazing artist, exhibiting her love for color, and arts and crafts. A detailed blending of watercolor paper, acrylic paint, stencil cutting, pen and ink detailing, and sewing and quilt design skills are revealed in her creations. Her work is truly an original technique of mixed media.



Jody recently teamed up with Connecting Threads as one of their very first licensed artists to create a line of fabric for them. I was honored when she asked me to design a quilt pattern to go along with her new line.  You can see the entire fabric collection here,  on page 43-45 of the new CT catalog.  

My pattern can be purchased as a single PDF pattern through Connecting Threads
or in a kit complete with the fabrics.  Thanks Jody for sharing your talents!

SHHHH...I just finished 2 addtional patterns for her next line of fabric.
Look for them in the Spring of 2013!
