Jacquie Gering

Lecture/Trunk Show – Intuitive and Outsider Design:

Learn Jacquie’s design philosophy, process and influences as she shares stories and quilts in this entertaining and informative lecture/trunk show.


About Jacquie:  The improvisational spirit of the quilts of Gees Bend inspired her to make her first quilt and the improvisational approach provided the freedom she craved and the opportunity to explore her creative potential. Jacquie’s quilt designs fuse her Mennonite background and respect for tradition with her modern design aesthetic.
Jacquie is a contributing designer and author for Stitch, Modern Patchwork, Quilter’s World and Quilter’s Quarterly and her quilts have been featured in other national and international publications. She is one of the designers featured in the books, “Block Party” and “We Love Color.” Jacquie is a leader in the modern quilting movement. She has served on the Board of Directors of the National Modern Quilt Guild and is one of the founding members and former president of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild and currently a member of the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild. Jacquie teaches and talks quilting across the country and shares her designs and quilting knowledge on her popular blog, Tallgrass Prairie Studio. She lives in downtown Chicago with her husband, Steve.
