JoAnn has enjoyed the sewing machine since she began producing her own clothes at age 12. In 1965 she began quilting with heavy polyester fabrics and no formal instruction. Encouraged by a friend she enrolled in classes in 1977 and has designed numerous quilts and wall hangings. She has taught a variety of classes in United States and Japan. Her influence in quilting has been felt from coast to coast. The Belling household has hosted a number of quilt groups for lectures and tours. Her finest work has been reproduced in national publications. JoAnn has received Best of Show and other ribbons on her quilts at the Iowa State Fair and other competitions. A total of 9 quilts have hung at Paducah as well as other national quilt shows. The Quilt Room at Hotel Pattee, Perry, Iowa, is the site for “My Jacobean Garden”. Concepts of color and composition which JoAnn uses in her photographic art are applied to the designing of quilts, borders and quilt back art. All phases of quilting are enjoyed by JoAnn but of greatest interest are the color and design portion. Planning and short cut methods are discussed. Organization in her dream sewing room gives you an insight to the reason JoAnn is able to create a number of quilt works each year.
