The Quilted Heart Omnibus series of post Civil War novellas released last Tuesday. Reader-friend, Jasmine Augustine, is celebrating with us . . . sharing her Quilters and Quilts story.
Jasmine is dedicating this interview to her Great Grandma, Ellen Derrick (1918-2012).
MONA: How long have you been quilting?
JASMINE: I made my first doll quilt when I was about 12 but didn’t make my first full-sized quilt until 2008, so I have been quilting on and off for either 13 years or 5 years depending on how you look at it.
MONA: Who influenced you to quilt?
JASMINE: Definitely my Grandma and Great-Grandma on my Mother’s side. They have a tradition of making beautiful quilts for their children to great-great-grandchildren. Someday I hope to be a little tea-light next to their large pillar candles. (more…)
Quilting is a form of storytelling. I love that about quilters and quilts. Storytelling in the design, but also in the process of quilting. And I’m excited to introduce you to my reader-friend, Amy Campbell, and share her story in this sixth week of the Quilters and Quilts Series.
MONA: Who inspired your love of quilts and quilting?
AMY: I love quilts because of my grandma, Molly Conner. She was a lifetime quilter. When I was little, she would show me her old trunk full of quilts she and her mother had made over the years. She would tell me stories about the quilts, which led to more stories about her, Granddaddy, her parents, grandparents, and her 14 brothers and sisters. (more…)
