H) Jacquie Gering:  quilter and pattern designer: 

artist statement: I am drawn to modern art, mid century design, most things vintage and fabric. My goal is to rethink quilting by finding and articulating my own voice. Ultimately it is about me, alone in my studio, creating my own process and expressing my preferences in my work. Simple is my preference, but i tend to overcomplicate. Quilts are life represented. quilts are personal.
