Trunk Show with Jodi Barrows

What a talented woman Jodi Barrows is! On Tuesday my local quilt shop, A Scarlet Thread, had Jodi for a visit and a wonderful trunk show. She performs magic with her Square in a Square ruler. 

I asked Jodi before she started speaking if she minded if I took a few pictures of her during her talk and blogged about her. She graciously said that she did not mind at all. So, here is a little look at Jodi and her Square in a Square quilts.

     Jodi is talking about "option 1" with her ruler.  

Jodi is demonstrating how easy it is to use the ruler.

This quilt is called All Spruced UpThe pattern is a
 free download on Jodi's website. 

This quilt is being held by Jodi's husband, Steve. 
It is called Primitive Star.

Another star quilt-this one with a Fall flair.

Even the trumpet blocks on this quilt were made with the SnS ruler.

Jodi told us all about the quilting women in her 
family-this is a picture of her great, great
grandmother, Elizabeth.

This quilt is called Missouri Compromise.
I apologize for the blur!

I have been to Jodi's website. It is filled with her books, fabrics, and rulers, but also with wonderful free videos to help you understand and use your SnS rulers. 

Jodi was a wonderful speaker-so personable and warm. If you are ever have a chance to see Jodi's quilts, don't pass on the opportunity. Her ruler is wonderful. I bought one and can't wait to make a quilt using it. Thanks, Jodi, for a fun afternoon. And thank you, A Scarlet Thread, for hosting Jodi.

Happy Quilting.
