Day 3 with Jackie O'Brien of If These Threads Could Talk

You are in for a treat this week; Studio 180 Design is hosting the Evening Elegance blog hop with several of our talented Certified Instructors. Each day two designs from our free BlockBuster program will be showcased in my signature collection, Twilight Chic.

Today I will leave you in the capable hands of the “Quilt Ninja”, Jackie O’Brien from If These Threads Could Talk. Enjoy her engaging post as she introduces you to BlockBuster #9 - Three in One and #16 - Peaks and Valleys.

Your CI Host for the Day:

Jackie O'Brien of If These Threads Could Talk

Jackie is currently residing in Whitesboro, New York, although she has interesting stories from many places called home from all around this country. She joined our very first Studio 180 Design Certification class in the fall of 2013 and has continued to be one of our most active teachers and designer. At present she is working with the Island Batik Ambassador program which monthly challenges participants to create unique projects based on a certain parameters.

As a regular blogger her posts often delight us with humor as well as knowledge. Our all time favorite post from Jackie was on her construction of a “big pin cushion”. Definitely give it a read!
