Dusty is a longarm quilting artist. He has been drawing and painting ever since he can remember. For him, quilting is a wonderful way to express his talent. Dusty’s work is all free hand. There is no computer attached to his longarm, no panagrams to follow, and no drawing on the quilts. He is continually going to classes and shows to develop his own unique style. Dusty has demonstrated in several local, state, and national shows for Nolting Manufacturing and will be demonstrating at several national shows in 2010. He is always taking classes for inspiration and a sketch book is never out of his reach. Dusty has been published in several magazines including American Quilter, Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, and Fabric Trends.
Dusty and his wife own “Country Stitchin”, a quilt shop in Northwestern Pennsylvania where he enjoys keeping busy with customer and shop projects. Have a longarm question, give Dusty a call. His voicemail says: "I'm either quilting or hunting. Please leave a message."
I have had the pleasure of seeing Dusty's quilting artistry on two of my quilt designs, the Dream Garden quilt and The Twinkling Star quilt both on page 1 in the Books, Kits & Patterns section of this website. I will be adding close-up details of his work soon. I've also just received another fine sample of his artistry on my quilt pattern, "Jake's Escalator" to be published soon in Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts
