Tell us about the quilt that means the most to you and why. This doesn’t have to be one that you made. And we’d love to see a picture!
I inherited this quilt that my grandmother made. She made much more beautiful and intricate quilts -- this is just the one that family members assumed a boy would want. But, I love it anyway. It’s full of texture (corduroy, velvet), is hand tied, and has wool batting. It’s the perfect size for reading under.
Do you have a tip or strategy to share with your quilting friends? (ex. Accurate cutting or piecing; managing stash; managing scraps; organizing quilt space; finding quilt time)
I’ve started spinning my seams -- it helps the points in 4 and 9 patch blocks look really good.
What kind of other crafts are you into besides quilting?
Sewing shirts. Gardening. Cooking. Baking. Is reading a craft? I used to knit a lot but haven’t been lately.
Where’s your favorite spot to eat in Cambridge?
It’s not fine dining, but I like Wrapro on Mass Ave (“Don’t Feel Awful, Get a Falafel”) followed by dessert at Berry Line next door. Also, Elmendorf Baking Supply in East Cambridge is amazing.
If you could take a “quilt” pilgrimage to anywhere in the world to meet anyone or see any quilts, where would you go and who or what would you see?
I’m interested in the tile and textile patterns in North Africa or the Middle East. I’d love to see more in person!
Do you have any favorite blogs/insta accounts we should know about? And where can we find you on the internet?
Although I don’t post enough, my instagram is @jambyjamby.
