A few of us GenQ staffers can't pass up black-and white fabric when we see it. We have stacks of everything from newspaper print to skulls to geometric prints to polka dots. It's irresistible. But what do we do with it?
Well, Jackie Kunkel is no stranger to the pages of GenQ and she gets us. Her book helps with this dilemma (it's a hard road as a quilter), showing how to pair these black/white wonders with pops of saturated color to create quilts that vibrate with intensity. Her unique use of simple and complex piecing - simple squares to piecing shape prior to cutting them in Drunkard's Path units, for example - offers something for every level of quilter. Fresh and fun!
Jackie Kunkel began quilting in 1993 and opened her long-arm quilting business in 2000. Jackie designs quilts for magazines and fabric companies and is the owner of Canton Village Quilt Works. She is a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor who travels the country teaching, lecturing, and showing quilts.
