EQ Ambassador, Alyce Blyth is such a talented designer. View some of her beautiful quilts below and read about how EQ gave her confidence to submit designs to magazines! A little about Alyce: Alyce Blyth began her quilting journey when her two children were just babies. It took a few years until they each had a quilt and in the process, she became hooked on her passion and purpose.

With a primary school teaching background, Alyce discovered that the quilting industry was the perfect blend of the things she loved most – creativity, puzzles and teaching.
