'Homage' Quilt by Jacquie Gering
Jacquie Gering started quilting in 2009 after learning about and seeing quilts from the African American quilters of Gee’s Bend.
Jacquie herself is of Mennonite heritage and quilting has been a part of her family’s history. But growing up sewing her own clothes and being surrounded by quilting, Jacquie didn’t love it and wasn’t good at it (in her own words). It wasn’t until discovering Gee’s Bend quilts at an exhibit that she was interested in quilting. The freedom of those designs and how different it was from what she knew opened her up to the world of quilting.
Jacquie developed her own style of quilting that is minimal, geometric, and shares topics that are near and dear to her heart.

“Building Bridges is a graphic representation of a move from one city to another and from one life to another.” – MQG Website
'Bang you're dead' quilt by jacquie gering
“‘Bang, You’re Dead’ was made in response to the violence in Chicago in 2012, in particular I was thinking of the children that are hurt and killed violently every day.” – Jacquie Gering
Since learning to quilt in 2009, Jacquie has published several books:
Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts
She was on the board of directors for the Modern Quilt Guild.
She’s written several FREE quilting tutorials here.
Jacquie is truly a talented modern quilter and educator of our time.
I hope you join us in the Quilters Candy Membership on April 20th, 2021, at 7:30 pm CST to hear from her personally.
