Paula make quilts on the same block in the Bronx where she grew up. Being a New Yorker wrapped up in the fabric of city life creates an inherent paradox contrasting the traditional image of quiltmaking as part of a simple, make-do, rural way of life with her own complex urban-shaped space.
For over twenty years, her work space was the forty-inch round kitchen table. A long distance view, alternate space, or not making quilts were not options. Paula believes this reality merged with her personality and passion for fabric in shaping the direction of her kaleidoscopic piecework, causing her to rely on intricate detail and inherent symmetry, and to invent a shape that makes the most of limited space. Her block style method is based on a pie-slice section.
Paula has authored six books: Kaleidoscopes & Quilts, Snowflakes & Quilts, Puzzle Quilts: Simple Blocks, Complex Fabrics, Paula Nadelstern's Kaleidoscope Quilts: An Artist's Journey Continues, Kaleidoscope Quilts: The Workbook and FABRICADABRA: Simple Quilts Complex Fabric.

Jacquie Gering, of Tallgrass Prairie Studio, loves art and design and doing her own thing, while she makes modern textile art.
Jacquie will share her quilts in this special trunk show that focuses not only on the pieced design, but on how quilting can be used to support, enhance and complement the piecing to create a cohesive, effective composition. Jacquie will highlight walking foot quilting but the principles she shares will apply to whatever quilting method you prefer.
