Mighty Lucky May Podcast : Amy Gibson

Amy Gibson Graphic

When I first discovered Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock, I was exploring the class offerings on Craftsy. She was the host of the 2012 Block of the Month Club, a free class with video tutorials to make different quilt blocks. I loved her bubbly personality along with her teaching style.

Over the next four years, I continued to follow her on her creative journey. Her For Keeps book inspired me to consider my creative projects carefully, enjoy the process and make out of love. After the 2012 Block of the Month class finished, Amy started her own Sugar Block Club to continue designing quilt blocks. Throughout her work,  I began to see the many emotional connections she made with her work and was excited to interview her for the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club.

As I expected from an amazingly thoughtful person, our podcast reflected Amy’s personality. She gives advice about finding your “voice” in your quilting projects, how her seemingly disparate past experiences contribute to her success today and how her challenge to find the contrast in quilt design can lead to visually appealing quilts. I hope you love this conversation. I know I did!
