Deb Karasik

At the Utah Quilt Fest they invite four national teachers every year, who teach classes throughout the week, and also lecture at one of the luncheons.  I was able to go to the luncheon on Friday and the National Teacher speaker was Deb Karasik.  Here we are at the luncheon - as you can see, it's a full house!  Below is Deb speaking.  She is a VERY funny lady and a talented quilter.  She told a funny story about Johnny Dep.  Apparently she used to be an interior designer and has designed three of his houses!  He still owns a quilt that she gave him.

Deb brought a LOT of quilts to show us.  She designs her quilts using EQ software.  Following are several of her quilts that I could get a good picture of.
You can find out more about Deb on her website:

Oh, one more thing, someone asked her what black fabric she uses for her background fabric in all of the bright quilts pictured below.  She said she uses 1895-4 fabric from Hoffman.  She said technically it's not black but a very dark blue!  Here is is:
They call it black, but it does look rather blue in the picture.
