MQX: Show Quilting with Gina Perkes


Gina Perkes is young, talented, enthusiastic — and a wealth of info on entering quilts for show. You can check out her quilts at to see for yourself.

Gina began the class by showing us non-traditional fillers — specifically hearts, clouds and funky feathers. She works with silk threads, and with wool and cotton battings.

She advocates that show quilts should be original, make a good first impressions, and have unique construction methods. She also suggests that your quilts have a place for your eye to rest and are balanced.

Gina finished the class by explaining how to block quilts.
