Today’s podcast guest is Heather Jones. A two time finalist for the Martha Stewart American Made Awards, Heather is a quilter, author, teacher, fabric and pattern designer. Her simple style emphasizes how traditional quilting can be made modern. Her Fly Away quilt is a perfect example.
In her book, Quilt Local, she explains how she stays in the moment, takes notes of inspiration around her and translates that inspiration into her quilts. While the book provides patterns, it is also a guide to finding your own quilt voice.
During our podcast, we talk about why she declined her first book offer and waited to write Quilt Local, how she followed her heart and pursued art as a career and her thoughts about the idea of “derivative” work in modern quilting.
To celebrate her episode on the podcast, Heather is also offering 20% off of any patterns in her shop. You can use coupon code: CRAFTY.
