Joanna, the snarky quilter (hereafter known as SQ) started quilting with cardboard templates back in pre-internet, pre-i anything days. In the 1990s her interest in quilting was renewed as technology advanced to rotary cutters and acrylic rulers. After a brief flirtation with traditional quilting, SQ now inhabits the transitional space between modern and art quilting, with occasional forays into paper piecing. Her most recent obsession is creating fabric with dyes, paints, and stamps.
SQ quilts so she can indulge her love of fabric and use up her collection of scraps. Her fabric collection contains almost no florals, but does have lots of stripes and weird blotchy prints. More recent acquisitions lean towards solids.
SQ’s husband enables her habit by putting up with threads all over the place and maintaining a “if it makes you happy” attitude even though he really likes traditional quilts with lots of flowers.
SQ belongs to a traditional guild and some art quilt groups. She has the quilting world covered.
This blog began as her attempt to record how she made her quilts. Journaling (is that a word?) was a bit too precious, so she went with this format considered obsolete by many. You can contact her at snarkyquilter(at)gmail(dot)com.
