About World Quilter

00selfportrait.jpg
I follow my husband around the world, and I carry my load of fabrics with me. In every country, I quickly find kindred souls, quilters, of all nationalities, who laugh and read and share their skills generously with one another, challenging one another to more and better quilting. And in every country, my collection of fabrics grows – horrors!

    Hello;
    I was looking for a good illustration of Stack and Whack, and got caught up in looking at the beautiful quilts displayed on your sight. I have had the best fun just looking and seeing what others have accomplished. Fantastic site. Thanks, Sandy

    Thank you, Sandy!

    Stack and Whack is so easy that sometimes it is underrated. My best friend loved the fruit stacks, and I found something similar I can hardly wait to whack.

    It tickles me because you really don’t know how it is going to work out, but I love the results! I love it so much I think I’ll be teaching it again soon to a whole new group of beginners.

    Others on our guild will be working on more advanced projects with hexagons. Wooo Hoooooo!

    I grew up that way, my family traveled from country to country because of my father’s job. I loved that lifestyle and now that I’m grown I miss that ability to visit other countries.

    It was the same for me, only it continued when I got married, lucky me!

    Hi,i am residing in Kuwait.I would like to know if there are any good teachers of quilting her.
    Thank you.
    Regard,mukta.

    Yes! There are, Mukta (and I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your question!) There is a group of men and women who love textile arts, and they belong to the Kuwait Textile Arts Association. There is a sub-group that specializes in quilting – I think they had over 70 members last year. Imagine! 70+ quilters in Kuwait!

    They have learn-to quilt classes, beginning and intermediate, and best of all, you also attend meetings monthly – they have day meetings and night meetings – and you clear from fellow quilters, too. It is a GREAT group, with people from nations all over the world.

    I think your ribbon friendship star (Yusef’s) is the most beautiful quilt I have ever seen! I would love to play off it for a wedding gift I am starting. Would you please share your pattern and any helpful tips?
    Thanks so much!

    Beautiful work! Very good to read a blog that supports locally maed crafts….many of our artists are quilters or into rug hooking and felting. http://blog.sidestreetstudio.com/wood/10-reasons-why-you-should-buy-local-arts-crafts/

    Sam, the ribbon star is a simple nine patch. Center is a square, all the others are half squares. In the corners, the color faces outward. The only caveat I give is to do each block separately, and make sure all the ‘star’ half squares are going in the same direction, so the ‘ribbon’ (background) will flow. Have fun. 🙂

    Beautiful crafts, Nigel, very lovely.

    Hello, I am newly arrived in Kuwait and trying to contact quilters. The KTAA seems to have abandoned their email address. Would be grateful if you had any contacts you could pass on.

    • worldquilter says:

      KTAA is starting up again this month; I think the quilters start mid-September. Check with Sadu House. Have you discovered the fabric souks? Hang out there, mornings are best, and when you see women looking at cottons, ask if they are quilters. You will find them!
