Featuring: Jacquie Gering

Posts On: January 14, 2013


Field Piece: Alma de la Melena Cox

Although she has only been quilting since 2008, teacher, author, (lifetime sewer) and Modern Quilter Jacquie Gering has already made quite a splash in the quilting world. Jacquie enjoys giving traditional blocks a fresh spin, and shares her technique for modernizing the classic Log Cabin block by altering the shape and size of the pieces and through adventurous fabric choices. She also demonstrates how to add lush texture to your quilts with straight-line quilting and the serpentine stitch. We catch up with Alma de la Melena Cox, an artist who uses paint and fabric to create "quilts on wood", while she was teaching at Quilter's Affair in Sisters, OR.

Thank you so much for permission to be free and creative with the log cabin block. I just made a very tradional quilt working hard to make all corners match. With my leftover pieces I just made a very modern block that was so much fun and freeing. I am going to quilt it and make a pillow out of it as I am out of scraps. Thanks again for making it okay to be free of patterns and rules✂️✂️✂️
