We're longtime friends and partners in Tuesday explorations. The time has come to share our contemporary quilting ideas!..... jill/ I've been a dedicated quilter for 12 years, teaching and working part time at the Quilting Connection in Ames, Iowa. I love simple contemporary design and asymmetry as it reflects my casual "seeking balance" personality. I'm easily sabotaged (when stuck in a design dilemma) by cute purses, laundry, clutter and HGTV...... marny/ I worked at the Quilting Connection (a community for all forms of quilters) for nine years. Exploring the modern design potential in quilting intrigues me. I enjoy writing patterns, problem solving and designing with fresh fabric. Those new fabrics always just seem better, don't you agree?
