Duo of Jacquie Gering Workshops

How lucky am I that I got to do two Jacquie Gering workshops in a weekend. VERY, let me tell you!  They were organized by the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild (thank you!) and took place in the Quiltworks space (excellent–nice big design walls) Afterwards this blog went on a bit of a vacation as did I, and then we both decided to take more of the summer off to complete other things, but it’s about time now to get back so here we are.

First off, if you get a chance to take a workshop with Jacquie Gering, please do!  It’s not just working on a project. Her workshops are packed with fantastic techniques and tips and she really works the room helping everyone out with their project, with both technical and aesthetic concerns. And she carries on which charisma and aplomb. There is a reason she’s made such a name for herself. She’s got “it”.

I took both the “Stitch N Flip” and the “Building Bridges” workshops and no, I cannot show you the quilts I did in the workshops…yet.  I promise I will finish them, but you will have to wait. MUCH more interesting though, I have some pics of Jacquie’s block samples and quilts from the workshop to give you a taste.

If she won’t be coming out your way or you can’t wait and you don’t already have it, her and Katie Pedersen‘s book, Quilting Modern, covers a lot of these techniques.  You will laugh in her workshops, and you will chuckle at some of the notes in the book. If you are interested at all in modern quilting, this is an absolute must have.
