There will be a special exhibition of my quilts at the Mancuso show, Quilt and Sewing Fest of New Jersey from March 2-5, 2017 in Somerset, NJ. It will showcase 10-15 (maybe more - we'll see) of my modern, modern traditional, improvisational, and all domestic machine-quilted quilts. When I'm not teaching (see below), I'll be sure to be there to talk to anyone about them! This is my first individual exhibition and I'm honored. My husband came up with the title (thanks, Mike!).
Jessica Skultety: My Quilty Habit
Do you love bright, bold, and uniquely quilted quilts? If so, you’re coming to the right place! Jessica Skultety, a 27-year-old* New Jersey quilter, teacher, lecturer, and writer, is a serial maker of improvisational and modern quilts. A self-taught quilter (thanks, Google!), she started quilting all of her work on a domestic machine and fell head over heels in love with creating "perfectly imperfect" stitches. Her current passions are creating wholecloth word quilts and dreaming up new ways to modernize traditional blocks. In addition to this special exhibit, Jessica will be teaching two classes centered around modernizing traditional blocks and improvisational techniques.
*I'm turning 27 in a month, so it was strange writing this in advance of March. :)
I'm also teaching my full day Orange Peels and Improv class and half day Wonky Cross class at the show! I am so excited. Register now to save your spot - it just opened to everyone and space is limited. For more information about each class and to register, click here (for Orange Peels) and click here (for Wonky Crosses). I hope you'll join me!
Finally, I'm teaching a short version of my essential improv class, Brick By Brick Improv, at the Mid-Atlantic MOD quilt retreat on April 29 from 2:30-4 (see more info here). If you're in one of the modern quilt guilds attending the retreat, you can register for classes and the retreat itself this Sunday, 11/13. Talk to your guild leaders for more info.
I've been a bit absent on the blog this week due to the U.S. election and a guild meeting, and this weekend I'm going to a much-needed guild quilt retreat! Next week, I plan to be blogging normally, and I'll explain the thought behind my latest wholecloth quilt, a work-in-progress. Have a wonderful weekend and do something fun.
