About Debbie

Welcome to all!

My name is Deb Johnson and I am "IN THE DOGHOUSE DESIGNS". I've been sewing since childhood, but only discovered quilting in about 1998. Since that point I've had the pleasure of working and teaching in a quilt shop.

Designing patterns has now become an amazing adventure.

I give credit to good genes, and many years of creative experiences in 4-H, sewing my own wardrobe, lots of bridesmaids' dresses and theatrical costumes. Huge influences come from so many talented quilters in the Wichita area.

 I love the variety of what I do. I like many styles of fabrics and quilts, and also enjoy embroidery. My heart's favorite, though, has always been a good old-fashioned sampler quilt!
