I was able to go to Quilt Walk this last Saturday with some friends. Jeanna Kimball, national teacher, known as a true pioneer of hand applique was the guest lecturer. Jeanna shared with us her journey into quilting, giving us a history of her beginning projects. To view her quilts through a trunk show was amazing.This is one of the first quilts Jeanna made. Doesn't look much like a first project for applique does it? Observing her skill level helps me understand why she moved so quickly into becoming a published author.
This another one of Jeanna's first quilts.
