Next Meeting

November 9 (Note second Monday)
Jacquie Gering

Quilting Modern, Honoring Tradition

Jacquie Gering is a passionate modern quilt maker and designer. She is known for her innovative "out of the box" designs, striking message quilts, and unique style. Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts is her first book.

Jacquie states that “I am drawn to modern art, mid-century design, and most things vintage and fabric. My goal is to rethink quilting by finding and articulating my own voice. Ultimately it is about me, alone in my studio, creating my own process and expressing my preferences in my work. Simple is my preference, but I tend to overcomplicate. Quilts are life represented. Quilts are personal.”

Jacquie is a leader in the modern quilting community and serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Modern Quilt Guild. The International Association of Creative Arts Professionals named her Quilt Teacher of the Year for 2014. She blogs and shares her quilting knowledge on her popular blog, Tallgrass Prairie Studio and lives in Chicago with her husband and black lab, Bruno.

Jacquie will be joining us for an inspirational talk on Quilting Modern, Honoring Tradition as well as a trunk show of her amazing work during our November meeting. In addition Jacquie will be teaching two 1-day workshops on November 7th and 8th.
