Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month journey into the land of childhood memory with a charming quilt designed especially for TQS by internationally-known Australian designer Lynette Anderson. Lynette combines simple, unpretentious folk art style appliqué motifs with patchwork blocks for a quilt that will be lots of fun to make. Each month we will provide photos, detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, and full-size patterns. We will once again be offering monthly companion teaching videos as well. It all makes for a year of fun and learning!

BOMThe Quilt Show presents A to Z for Ewe and Me, the latest quilt in prizewinning quilter Janet Stone's 26-quilt alphabet series. Designed exclusively for members of TQS, the 69"x 82" quilt is a playful yet sophisiticated sampler. Each letter in the alphabet has its own panel, where it's combined with a related pieced or appliqued block. Make one for the child in your life, or make one for the child in you!

Meet Janet Stone

Janet Stone has been quilting for about 14 years, but things really took off for her in 2006 when she bought herself a Bernina. Janet has always loved writing, simply for the joy of making letters. In 2008, she made her first quilt featuring letters of the alphabet and entered it in a show. The quilt took first place, and since then Janet has committed to making 26 alphabet quilts, one for every letter of the alphabet, and entering competitions. Janet is also known for her love of sheep, and they often appear alongside the letters in her quilts.

Janet's quilts have won numerous major awards in both national and international competition. In 2012, she was inducted into the National Quilting Association's Master Quilt Guild for her quilt Red Letter Daze. Most recently, her quilt A Letter Bit of Baaltimore was awarded the 2013 Founder’s Award at the International Quilt Association's World of Beauty contest in Houston, Texas.
