A quilter since before the advent of the rotary cutter, Linda is pleased to be utilizing her quilting, teaching, writing, and editing skills as an associate editor with AQS. A recent move from New England has Linda happily living in Paducah s LowerTown Arts District where she also has her quilting studio. Between commission, she is working her way through a diminishing collection of UFOs.Review:
...Many great variations of the pattern, some very imaginative, some are every complicated and obviously more time consuming. I love most all the books from this series - I find them very inspirational! The patterns of the finalists' quilts are also in the book, so you can try to re-create the featured quilts. -Quilting Artist Anya
