Quilting Cousins!

05/31/2011

 
I recently got in touch with two cousins of mine who quilt. It has been great to learn about their projects and chat with them about their quilting adventures. Here is a bit more about them and some photos of their quilts.

My cousin Jan Gessin lives in Sydney, Australia and is an expert on antique doll quilts. She sent me some amazing photos and historical information about her collection. You can see the quilts on her her website, OnlineQuilter. I was so inspired by some of the fabrics in her collection I had to invent a new project based on them. More on that soon...
Another cousin, Tamara Borok, is also a quilter. She has an impressive gallery of over 40 quilts she has made and projects in process. She teaches quilting in the San Francisco area and will be teaching traditional blocks such as the Carpenter's Square, Gordian Knot, Boxes of Splendor and a beginners quilting class soon.  Her quilt, Storm at Sea (pictured) was a 1st place winner in the San Francisco Quilt Show, 2011. Congrats Tamara!

I think we should start a family swap or block of the month club. It would be really fun!
