Jeanette Walton is a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor and an award-winning quilter. Quilting is in her DNA.
Both her grandmother and mother were hand quilters. Jeanette still has a nine-patch quilt made by her grandmother that was given to her as the oldest grandchild. She cut pieces for her mother using scissors, which we all know was not fun.
Fast forward to 2003 when she took a quilting class and discovered the rotary cutter. In 2008, she took a class with Judy Niemeyer and worked on the Amazon Star and has been a Judy Groupie ever since. After training with Judy over subsequent years, she was certified to teach patterns in 2014.

Jeanette retired from a career in Human Resources in 2013 and began teaching Judy’s patterns at a local quilt shop. Her passion is showing beginning students how easy Judy’s patterns are to read, how organized the patterns are, and how simple to finish if the steps are followed.
In addition to teaching at local quilt shops and guilds, Jeanette enjoys teaching with Quilt Seminars at Sea, the Houston Quilt Festival, and in 2020, Empty Spools at Asilomar. Her biggest reward is the satisfaction of seeing amazing works of art from beginning students who previously had said, “I could never do that.”
