Sit Back and Watch The Quilt Show

Jinny and RickyI hope all of you who celebrated Christmas yesterday had a day which was “merry and bright.”  Often, though, we are left dragging the following day, hoping for a little time to relax.  I have a suggestion for what you can do to kick back and put your feet up for an hour.

Six years ago I was honored to have been named a quilting “legend” by my friends Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims from The Quilt Show. The episode they filmed for their show took place in my home and at the Studio here in Great Falls.  This week, through January 1, they are offering their legend shows for free.  In my episode, you will see my historic home (parts of which date back to 1750), my gardens and visit my Studio. I talk about my start in quilting and my color theory, and I get to show you some of my quilts.  If you would like to see this episode and others, visit The Quilt Show following this link.

    I just finished watching The TQS episode where they honored you, Jinny, you are my hero. I am a beginner quilter of three years, I was adopted by 14 experienced quilters who said they would teach me how to quilt and now I can’t find enough time in the day to accomplish everything that pops into my head. I am the only one in our group who does everything by hand, I love the time it takes to put in each stitch and I can see improvement the more I do. Currently I am quilting the first top we put together in class, a square a month and I am designing an original quilt top made out of neck ties my son has discarded—that is a challenge and I am loving it. Thank you for your inspiration.
