I met Jackie White!

>> Thursday, September 22, 2011

Who is Jackie White? A fabulous Northern Ontario quilter! She was one of the main co-ordinator for the Hawberry Quilt Show Sept. 17 & 18th on Manitoulin Island. Here we are posing while my daughter snapped a photo of us in front of one of Jackie's quilts. {Jackie's on the right}

The show was very impressive and I'll share lots of photos in the next few posts. This post will feature some of Jackie's quilts. These flowers are 3 dimensional. Jackie loves to create quilts with dimensional embellishments - she is even hosting workshops!

 Here's a photo I took from the side to help you see the dimensionality. This quilt, as I think most quilts, look best in person. The connection the viewer feels with the material, the size, the quilting, is lost in photography. That said, LOTS of inspiration can be experienced and new techniques or colour combinations can be introduced to the observer of quilts in photographs!

This was a larger quilt done by Jackie. The machine stitching details are amazing.  I didn't even notice the cool border rainbow until I enlarged the photo! I love the shoes peeking into the bottom of the quilt. Do you see them?

Jackie has a wonderful blog where she shares lots of tutorials and her many quilts. She has also recently revealed her writerly self as she writes a humour column in The Canadian Quilter magazine. She is also part of Amanda's posse.

Jackie was the first Blogger that I've met in person. It was fun and felt like I was visiting with a friend, not a stranger.

And. . . I even bought some of her hand dyed fabric. Just a fat quarter bundle. BUT, it's a really nice start to my new obsession collection! I think she has plans to sell some here.

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Geesh... you sure know how to make a person look good! And what a fantastic side shot of my quilt... why didn't I think of that?

Yes, I just started my etsy shop last nite, and have my hand dyed fabric ironed tonite, ready to get posted tomorrow.

Thanks again for the fabulous post.
