Featured Quilt - Maybe A Green Ribbon Instead of Blue

Kumiko Frydl, the Master of the Miniature Quilt, has done it again and taken home another award for her miniature work. Her quilt, Emerald Labyrinth, won First Place - Miniature Quilts (sponsored by Quilters Select by Alex Anderson and RNK Distributing) at AQS Quiltweek 2022 in Paducah. This isn't the first ribbon to adorn this quilt though, as it also won Best Machine Stationary Quilting at Road to California 2022 and First Place - Miniature Quilts at Houston 2021. Click through to see this marvelous mini work and learn the inspiration for the quilt as well.

Alex Loves the Story of Michael Thorpe

Michael grew up around quilters but basketball was his passion. He started playing around with photography and eventually took pictures that he used to start making quilts. His first quilt was a self-portrait. Michael believes that knowing, "What to highlight and where to highlight it" is an important part of creating a stunning quilt. Learn about Michael Thorpe.

Alex is LIVE TODAY, May 27, 2022 @ 10am PST, 1pm EST, and 6pm London time. All classes are recorded so they can be viewed later.

Behold The Quilt Shop Cuckoo Clock
It's About Time

Most quilters have probably been to a quilt shop at least once in their quilting careers, but they probably haven't visited one like this (and not just because they can't fit into it). Jodie Davis is both a quilt lover AND a cuckoo clock lover and wanted to combine her passions, which resulted in the Quilt Shop Cuckoo Clock.
