I’m super excited to announce that starting this winter, I will be writing a regular column for the Quilting Quarterly, the official magazine of the National Quilting Association. I invite you to become a member of this tremendous organization, not only to read my articles, but to glean insights and further participate in this wonderful community.
My ongoing column will be entitled “Quilt as Desired” and in it I will share my tips, tricks and ideas on how you can quilt your own quilts! On occasion, I will even include a pattern in the magazine showing how to put my ideas into practice.
I highly recommend becoming involved as many quilting groups as you can. From my local guild to national organizations, it’s a great way to enjoy more of what the quilting community has to offer.
Meeting Jacquie Gering at QuiltCon for the first time in 2013
I’ve been a member of NQA off and on over the years and renewed my membership last year after returning home from QuiltCon. I had just met Jacquie Gering and she was able to use a picture of mine and a quote about the show in her ongoing NQA series, “Modern Moments.” It’s by far one of my favorite columns in the magazine and I love how NQA embraces all walks of quilters, no matter their style!
I was further pleased when a couple of NQA certified judges agreed to sit on our Modern Quilt Guild judging committee to provide recommendations on how to make the competition portion of QuiltCon a better experience for everyone. :-)
My first article and pattern will be in the winter issue coming out this December, so be sure to join NQA so you don’t miss a thing!
