Virginia Avery

I just learned of the passing of Virginia Avery. She would have been 100 on her next birthday, the end of this month. What a lady!
Jinny was one of the quilt world’s pioneers. Back in the early 70s, she decided people needed someone to teach them to quilt, and that person was going to be her. She was good at sewing clothes. Never mind that she really hadn’t actually made a quilt.
Thanks for so much inspiration, Jinny, in so many ways. Learn more about Jinny at The Quilt Show. (Available until the end of September 2012)
