My name is Helen Godden!
I am an Extreme Free-Motion-Machine-Quilter (EFMMQ).

I am thrilled to have been awarded many times for my innovative quilts, both internationally and nationally and I am the Handi Quilter Ambassador for the Sweet Sixteen quilting machine, and now the Capri and Amara Stationary machine too. 
I am so lucky to travel and teach and share my love of quilting far and wide. My goal is to “Educate and Inspire” all quilters as they launch into the world of possibilities that is Art Quilting .

Designs - Dimensional Curved Piecing


Southwind Designs features original designs and patterns by Annette Ornelas, a German-born quilt artist, teacher and designer. Annette lives in Fayetteville, North Carolina, with her husband and their three dogs. Most of her time is devoted to teaching and designing, or spending time outdoors, enjoying her garden. She also loves riding along on her husband’s Harley and gets inspiration from looking at the scenery they pass.

Annette conducts workshops and lectures throughout the United States. Her unique approach to quilting has led her to design numerous Dimensional Curved piecing patterns and books. Annette also enjoys making and teaching her unique free-form Textured Landscapes designs.
