Afton Warrick designed a new quilt block for you, coming up next. Learn more about Afton’s work at Quilting Mod. She teaches quilting classes and shares lots of tutorials and sew-alongs on her site. (Like her Drive Through Quilt-Along.) Afton also shares lots of free patterns too.

I’m Afton Warrick, stay-at home mother of two and wife. I also assist Gail Garber, put in a few hours at Quilts Ole, teach Continuing Education at UNM, and design quilt patterns for my Craftsy shop. Before children, I enjoyed working as a first and second grade teacher.

I’m originally from Cheyenne, WY, home of Frontier Days. Currently, I reside in Albuquerque, NM, home of the International Balloon Fiesta. I have no intention of moving from my two-story stucco home, EVER, as that would unveil the true extent of my fabric hoard stash.

Afton’s “Enchanted New Mexico” Quilt

While I’ve been quilting most of my married life, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered modern quilting and the fantastic community of online quilters. It’s been a pleasure to experience Flickr groups, blog hops, fabric swaps, online bees and linky parties.

My blog has evolved in purpose from a scrapbook of quilts to a means of collaborating with others in the pursuit of creativity and friendship. Quilting Mod is my forum for inspiration, sharing my quilting experiences and journaling my growing understanding of what constitutes modern quilting.
