I took a workshop with Jacquie Gering (Tallgrass Prairie Studio) through my guild, the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild. Jacquie had a great trunk show and we were all in awe! She has only been quilting for about five years but she has quite a wonderful body of work. The quilts are fresh and colorful and a little edgy.
Jacquie was wonderful to work with. The workshop was a lot of fun-everyone did different projects under her direction and a good time was had by all.
I made mine in all black and whites with pops of red. My daughter had requested a new table runner and this was my chance to get something done! I got most of the squares pieced, laid out, and sewn into rows. I finished setting the top and began quilting it at another guild sewing day.
I quilted it with black thread in a loopy meander. It is a little bit hard to see when you match the thread to the quilt so closely. I guess that way no one can see my mistakes. I got the binding on the day after Christmas. I had some squares left over so I made her some matching coasters.
