Teresa Coates' quilts show how mixing your textiles can really bring a quilt to life. Her gallery exhibit makes you feel like you are on a road trip by showcasing various landmarks throughout the country. There is something special about traveling and experiencing new places and Teresa likes to put a new spin on what she experiences by translating it into a quilt. We were excited to feature her work in our gallery and be able to sit down and virtually chat with her about the travels that inspired these quilts. Watch the video to see her exhibit and read below for a one on one interview.
There’s something a-foot at AccuQuilt! The first Tuesday of every month through the end of 2021, AccuQuilt will introduce an all new die through our Die to Try, Die of the Month Program!
March is National Women's History Month and March 8th marks International Women's Day, a global day dedicated to celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Not all quilters are women, but many amazing women use the craft to to support each of those very accomplishments. Quilting is an incredible art which means that it speaks volumes about the world around us as well as the artist who create them. From themed pieces with commentary to scrappy throws made of upcycled materials, quilts are just as social, economic, cultural and political as the women who help make them. We asked the women of our GO! Getters team to tell us how they challenge their quilting and the quilter status quo in 2021.
AccuQuilt has two great new dies bursting onto the scene today – the GO! Coffee & Tea Medley (55212) and GO! Dinosaur Medley (55213) special limited edition dies. The shapes on these dies are some of quilters most frequent requests – so let’s dig in and take a closer look!
