Debbie Maddy

Debbie has always loved fabric and learned to sew garments at the age of nine. In 1982, she learned to quilt and it quickly became one of her passions. Soon she was designing patterns for quilts that look difficult to make but are really easy for beginners. Debbie’s designs use her ‘No Diamonds No “Y” Seams’ technique to make them very easy to piece. She publishes patterns under the name Calico Carriage Quilt Designs and is an internationally traveling teacher for quilt guilds and quilt shops. In 2005, she was invited to California to tape an episode of Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson for HGTV. In 2013 and again in 2015 Debbie was nominated for Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Professional Crafters. In 2014 Debbie taped her first online quilt class for Craftsy. Her quest for all things new has brought her to the world of fiber dyeing. She loves all kinds of dyeing from the ancient art of Indigo to the fun newer art of Ice Dye. In 2016 she is going to Japan for 10 days to further her study of Shibori and Indigo. Her adventures of traveling, teaching and meeting new people have been a dream come true.
