If These Threads Could Talk/ Jackie O'Brien
If you read our last blog, you'll know that Jackie O'Brien used to work with us at Quilters Dream. She took her quilting talents and spunk with her when she moved from Virginia to New York.
Known as the "Quilt Ninja", Jackie has made over 200 quilts since her first in 2004. She has also quilted over 50 One Block Wonders and is proud to be a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor.
"I love taking something that has no form and giving it form. There is something about making a quilt that makes me feel as though I’ve created something special."
Jackie's statement rings true to us in the office as well. Knowing how much Neva loves Wizard Of Oz, Jackie surprised her with this adorable tote....just because! Neva loved that she added a famous line from the movie in embroidered letters too.
If you ask Jackie what her favorite Quilters Dream Batting product is, she will tell you...
"I’m a cotton girl so I would say my go to is Dream Select. But if it is a special quilt I absolutely love, I'll use Dream Orient. It is so soft the quilt just drapes in your arms."
Read on to check out some of her amazing work. You can also click each title to read in more detail about each quilt on her blog!
The new year looks busy for Jackie. Waiting for a new frame for her quilt machine, she already has 7 quilt tops lined up to finish.
