About

It was my great joy to become a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor for Deb Tucker in 2013. I offer classes/workshops for all Studio 180 Design tools and techniques. 

My quilt “Waves of Joy is included in Deb Tucker’s “Royal Treasures” book featuring Hunter Star Quilts. My quilts have been exhibited at the Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg, Virginia, The Fenimore Art Museum, and the Farmers Museum in Cooperstown, the Earlville Opera House in Earlville, NY, and the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute in Utica, NY.

I am so proud that two of my One Block Wonders are featured in Maxine Rosenthal’s book “One Block Wonders Around the World”. 

I have been teaching this technique since 2006 and offer Classes/Workshops.

    I just found your website today. I’ve watched your videos on YouTube and I’m excited to try this. A couple of our quilt group had planned to take a class and it filled up too quick, so we’re going to try it on our own with your video help. Will be our first one. Yours are so beautiful! Your instructions are so easy to follow, thank you for posting them for us to follow. I’ve signed up for your emails too and Facebook page.

    Hello, I am taking your class (two Saturdays in March) at J. Madeleine’s in E. Rochester NY. Will these two fabrics work? I wanted to use part of the panel with the all over pattern surrounding it. That said, it doesn’t say what the repeat is! I will call them. Thank you! https://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Wilmington-Prints-Flower-Market-Danui-Nai-Large-Floral-Panel-Multi?quantity=1&custcol_tt_itemoption_decimals=1 and https://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Wilmington-Prints-Flower-Market-Danui-Nai-Packed-Flowers-Multi?quantity=1&custcol_tt_itemoption_decimals=1

      Thank you so much for your quick reply. The all-over print will work as well…is that correct? It is the second URL in my message above. First time taking a class for this type of quilt…just want to ensure it goes well!

        Thank you for the very quick reply. I purchased 8 panels only because sometimes I make mistakes and it’s good to have the extra just in case. Looking forward to seeing you on the two Saturdays in March! Thank you again. Linda

    Just finished my first one with panel! On to the second one… Your”twas the night before Christmas”! Any tips? Strip width? Strip direction? Did you have any trouble with the shiny digital fabric? Thanks! Karen. P.s. so relieved you got your quilts back! Every quilters nightmare!

      Did you download my pdf doc about using panels? It is under the Class schedule tab. I cut my strips 3 3/4” and cut them selvedge to selvedge. Although on Facebook group One Block Wonder Quilt forum they say it doesn’t matter which way you cut your strips. When I made The Tree, the panel,was so big I chose to cut the strips the shorter way, cut edge to cut edge because it was easier to manage.

        Hi Jackie,
        I am signed up for your class on OBW at the Triangle Quilt Guild in May. I am selecting my panel fabric now. I understand that 7 are recommended with 24” panels, but how big is the resulting quilt? Also, if the panel is 36” or 45” wide instead of 24”, how many are needed? Can you tell me what size quilt I would end up with using say…..6 panels from each o these?
        I appreciate your feedback and look forward to the class.

    You are a fantastic teacher. I attended your OBW class in Virginia Beach. Used the peacock fabric in the black and gold color way with unique borders. Let me know if you remember it. Or me. I’ve been wanting to attend more of your classes and I will as soon as my health is better. Love your skills!

    I came across your utube tutorials for OBW quilts a few weeks back and they inspired me so much that I had to have a go at making one for myself. This has been the first quilt I have ever attempted and I finished it this morning so I just wanted to thank you for your awesome tutorials.

    You have doxies AND you make beautiful OBW quilts! You must be a great woman! 🙂 I commented on another post under your hexagon gallery page, then came to this page and saw your doxies! I had a mini long hair for 13 years, but lost her in May 2013. Hug your babies for me! 🙂

      I’m sorry for your loss. I am a Doxie fan, I just love them. My sister has one also, her name is Zoey and she is 1 year old. My girls are 7. They are so short they can’t get on the furniture without ramps, so there are ramps all over my house. Zoey runs and jumps like a. Circus dog. If you email me at sewjackie@live.com tomorrow I will send you the class notes.

    I just saw where that CT Publishing had you take down the tutorials. I sent an email to the publisher telling them how disappointed I am. I only bought the book after seeing your tutorials. They were so helpful. My friend and I plan to start our OBWs this Friday. We were counting on your tutorials and are so disappointed!

      Thank you so much. Once you make a OBW you never look at fabric the same way again. I am always on the lookout. For the most part I can even tell online when it is a large enough print. Alexander Henry has great OBW fabric. I find a lot on eQuilter.com, hancocks-Paducah.com, fabric.com

    Jackie, I am one of those new people who discovered this page. I found you on Youtube first, checking out your OBW page! Holy smokes, you are amazing. I really like how you have “broken” some of the OBW rules to great effect! I admire the dickens out of you, and love the OBW tutorial. You are so down to earth! Hope I get to meet you one day! Sincerely, Mary

    Jackie – CONGRATS upon your most successful completion of the Deb Tucker school for quilting ninja’s. Does this mean you will add more pockets to your ninja vest? When I read about the certification program from Deb Tucker’s site, I immediately thought of you – it was destiny that you would attend. So far, I have managed (aka used) just three of her rulers….looks like more classes with you are in my future to use the rest! Again, nicely done Jackie and as we say in the military “BZ” (bravo zulu).

    Cheers! Liz
