My name is Judy Lilly and I have been a certified quilting instructor since 1995. I earned my certification from the National Quilting Association and I have taught hundreds of students over the past 24 years. Teaching is my favorite part of the quilting experience! My classes are informative and fun in a relaxed atmosphere - with chocolate in the afternoon! Classes, lectures, and trunk shows are my specialty.
I was born and raised in Southern West Virginia. I learned the art of quilting from my mother and fell in love with quilts at an early age. My first quilt top was a home economics project when I was 16 and I haven’t stopped this wonderful hobby/vocation since that time! I truly enjoy traveling, teaching, and sharing my passion as a full time adventure.
My work has won numerous awards that are displayed in both personal and private collections across the country. Currently my favorite type of quilting is landscape quilts—pictorial works that look and hang like art! I endeavor to combine my art background and quilting knowledge as I create these artistic views of many beautiful places I’ve visited. God’s creation is awesome!
I currently live and work in Myrtle Beach, SC with my husband of 58 years, Clarence. We have two grown children, Ritch and Kristin and a 15 year old granddaughter, Lyric. Our lives are busy with our local church, family, and friends, but much of the time you’ll find me in my studio space pursuing creative endeavors. I believe God gives us gifts to use for His glory and I am thankful for the many opportunities He has given me to share with others. My life verse is Matt. 6:33: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you".
