Juanita Quilters Banner

Reader-Friend Juanita Nobles is my guest in Week 10 of the Quilters and Quilts Blog Series celebrating the release of The Quilted Heart Omnibus.

MONA: How long have you been a quilter?

JUANITA: I’ve been quilting for 30 years. I started in 1983. I have done all types—paper piecing, applique, piecework, but I usually stick to pretty simple designs.

MONA: Who influenced you to start quilting?

JUANITA: Both my grandmothers quilted, but in those days they just put fabric together because they needed warm covers for the bed. When I started making quilts, it was to make pretty designs with colorful, coordinating pieces.

I did attend one simple class, but mostly I bought books and fabric and taught myself.

Quilters and Quilts ~ Week 9, Jasmine Augustine

Jasmine Banner

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…)
