4. How Quilting Changed One Student's Life
August 14, 2014

What does the University of Michigan and quilting have in common? Thanks to former graduate student Kyra Hicks, quite a bit.

At the time, she was taking a course in black women’s feminist thought and her class was delving into the world of African American quilts. Her grad course coupled with what she calls a stunning display instantly made her want to quilt for herself. “This is how I want to tell stories,” she says. Since then, Hicks has created 20 quilts, but... (read more)

12. How To Make A Quilt - Quilt Patterns
January 17, 2013

When quilts were first made they were a means of using up parts of clothing that could no longer be worn to make something useful and warm. What a long way we have come since then! In those times mothers taught their daughters how to make a quilt and they would spend many hours crafting quilts either for immediate use or to be part of their trousseau. The first quilters swapped patchwork quilts patterns amongst themselves and so the same design would become known in a region because people did not travel very far. The advent of newspapers made a big difference because then free quilt patte... (read more)

14. Beautiful Quilt Fiber Art Brings All Together
December 18, 2012

Standing in line is something that none of us enjoy. In Greece, it’s a well-known fact that Greeks do not respect the queue! They really don’t. A line, just like a stop sign, is just a suggestion of proper behavior. People in America are not much better, but we don’t accept it as the norm. Still, if a great fabric sale is on, I’ve seen quilters stand in line for hours without a complaint and little to no line cutting; in both countries. So, what’s different? Greeks are in a hurry, always, and don’t respect that others are also in a hurry. And, other than being Greek, each person ha... (read more)

15. Long Journey with Machine Embroidery Designs
November 21, 2012

Quilters and embroiderers like to joke that housework is something best left undone. It takes time away from more enjoyable activities like stitching and looking for new embroidery designs. Drooling over new fabrics is much better than cleaning the dog drool off the floor. Now that the packing and cleaning portion of our move home to California to Greece is almost complete, I am swearing off this mindset for good! Instead of enjoying our last few days in this beautiful setting, we are cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. I don’t think my fingernails will ever be the same. When I began m... (read more)

23. Quilt with a Sewing Machine Block by Block
April 16, 2012

Quilting is the process of stitching the three layers of a quilt -- pieced top, batting, and backing -- together. Quilting on a regular sewing machine can be frustrating when you end up with a puckered backing, or in pain from wrestling all that fabric around. Some quilters painstakingly piece a quilt top with pride only to send it out to a professional quilter for finishing. Consider quilting your masterpiece block machine by block for more control over the finished quilt and the satisfaction of completing the whole project yourself.

Instead I found a treasure trove of others, like me, who enjoyed nothing more in life than making quilts. It was something I hadn’t expected to find and something that has changed my life. ...
