There's a lot of writing from lots of different quilters from all walks of life, talking about how they make quilts and why and how they got started. Now instead of clearing the floor and trying to lay out the pieces to create my design I can now keep it on the wall until I am ready to start sewing. Sort order.

Thank you! All art rises, at least in part, out of a sense of play, of trying something new and creating new worlds.
While quilting and sewing are challenging at times especially in the beginning, when you're just mastering basic skills , try to take it slow, be patient with yourself, and keep on trying new ideas and techniques. Playing with fabric, form, and design will lead you to find your own way of creating quilts that express who you are, as Jacquie Gering page proves here with her Broken Cogs. You're going to have those frustrating moments when you realize you need to pull out a row of stitches, or that your seams don't match up at all.
That's what your quilting friends are there for — the venting and encouragement! But as you sew, try to hold onto your sense of fun and exploration. Try new patterns and skills, experiment with new techniques. Just see what happens. You'll surprise yourself. Weeks called Nancy Crow "our mitochondrial Eve," the one who birthed us all — art quilters, modern quilters, innovative traditional quilters, improv-piecers, and everyone in between.
But if that's the case, then Weeks and Bill are quilting's great-grandparents in metaphor only, not in age! Weeks and Bill emphasize that modern quilting, for them, is "a philosophy, not a style. That doesn't describe what they look like. What I make tomorrow may bear no resemblance to what I made yesterday. What drives us is the excitement of concepts. So, if we're teaching a design workshop, what will get me so jazzed is talking one-on-one with students about the visions they have.
It's a back and forth. One of the women in my workshops said that our discussions about the quilt she was working on drove many of the ideas in a book she has coming out. And that's exciting!

Something is getting pushed forward. This is what first drew me and many others to this world, and it's Bill and Weeks who have helped to foster what the community is today. Both quilters hold graduate degrees in design and together have published five books, launched a magazine and fabric line with Andover Fabrics, made custom quilts, and taught workshops.
They published their first book in , Color Harmony for Quilts, illustrating quilts made with solids and the "fresh" composition that has come to be known as "modern quilting. It's Weeks's and Bill's drive to continue creating quilts and talking about color and composition that has pushed modern quilters to think about design in new ways and to focus on developing sewing and quilting skills.
As much as they've loved writing their books, they're clearly delighted with the process of creating a magazine. People figured out long ago that there's a way you can make patterns legible and flow — books are pretty much templated. And we wanted to challenge that notion. If every quilt is different, each quilt needs a different approach. The magazine is a way to explore, for our own sake and for our readers', different ways of doing things.
Some may work, some may not work as well. We're not doing new for the sake of new, we're doing new for the sake of discovery. There was nobody in my family, nobody among my friends, nobody I knew in Japan — I had never had a conversation with anybody who had made a quilt.
