Tony Jacobson, is a nationally-known quilt designer and teacher. He learned to piece quilts from his Grandmother, Harriett Wright, when he was 10 years old and has been creating quilts in one form or another ever since. He and his wife, Jeanne, wrote a book called Quilting Around Your Home in 1992. Since then many of his quilt designs have appeared in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting, Easy Quilts, and Quilting Quickly. Tony has also been creating art quilts for many years. “I’ve always had a love of hand-dyed fabrics and my art quilts are a great place to use the one-of-a-kind fabrics I’ve collected over the years. Many times, I will start an art quilt without a plan as to where the quilt design is headed or what size the final quilt will be.”
Let the Fabric Do the Work
Saturday, July 20, 2019, 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
You can add a lot of interest and movement into your quilts with your choice of fabric. Tony will show examples of how you can make simple quilts look like they take a lot more time and effort than they do. Fabric selection is the key to simplifying your quilt making with wonderful results. He will also show how the same quilt design can be transformed from traditional to contemporary to modern based on what fabrics are used. This trunk show will get you inspired to try new approaches to your quilting.
