Today’s Inspiring Quilter is Mari from The Quilting Edge:

Mari’s Aura I

Debbie writes, “When I discovered Mari of The Quilting Edge several months ago, I was smitten with what I thought was a beautiful quilt-as-you-go table runner. But no! It was actually just one section of a quilt. Mari’s use of shape and color and quilting has taken me on such an adventure. She just may knock all of our socks off!”

Mari’s Ripple Effect I

Mari has a recent post that sums up her “roller coaster ride” of 2013, including some of her quilting highlights, features on her quilts in some big publications, teaching at her first retreat and more. Here’s a link to her quilt gallery, and here are her helpful tutorials, including how to add easy circles to your quilts, spiral quilting tips and more.

Debbie from A Quilter’s Table curated a Quilting Month series for us with 31 Inspiring Quilters throughout January! Learn more about Debbie in our first post of the series, and follow her on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Flickr.

Our Inspiring Quilters series is sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop. Fat Quarter Shop sells Moda fabric, quilting fabric, quilt kits and more, including free quilt patterns.
