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.
