Dixie Frantz lives in the Houston area. She has nearly 40 years of quilting experience from traditional machine piecing to paper piecing and beyond! A few years ago she took a collage art class and fell in serious love with the technique. Her walls at home are filled with her quilts which she changes out seasonally. Dixie has created a number of her own design art patterns for sale. She has taught the technique at Cupcake Quilts before the Coronavirus changed life as we know it. Her quilting motto: Every year I donate a quilt to charity, gift a quilt or two to family/friends, and keep a quilt. Dixie also has been blogging for 8 years about quilting and life at lifesloosethreads.com.
