It's Time for the May 2015 BOM Patterns

Spring is in the air! My heart sings, because I know my best friend is waiting for our arrival at the front gate.  Butch, the black dog, with his wonky ears and a little heart tag, is so pleased to see us.  Mr. Bird is sitting on Butch’s back, hoping that Mrs. Bird will notice him.

TQS Talks to Maura Ambrose of

TQS caught up with Maura Ambrose of at QuiltCon 2015.  She spent a few minutes with us talking about her traditional roots and their modern interpretation, a collaboration with the singer, John Mayer, and riding on the artisan train.


Maura was educated in Textile Design + Fiber Arts, at Savannah College of Art & Design.  She worked for a few years in preschools, on a couple organic farms, and then spent some time traveling America. Her goal is to share the craft and folklore that prevails around natural dyes and quilting.  She uses natural dyes (which she grows organically) in the making of her quilts and uses both vintage and new materials.  Maura uses 100% natural fibers and favors solid colors for their timeless appeal.  She also hand quilts all her quilts. Maura says it takes more time, but she feels the results are greater and more valuable than a manufactured quilt.
