Kitsap Quilters’ Guild show – featured artist Jaxine Anderson

My local quilt guild, Kitsap Quilters’ Guild, held their annual show this Friday and Saturday at the Kitsap Fairgrounds in Silverdale. The show featured over 200 entries from our members, and a special exhibit show casing the work of guild member Jaxine Anderson. Here’s a tour of Jaxine’s lovely display.

Jaxine is a traditional quilter. Her work is predominantly pieced, but you’ll spy a small amount of applique too. She began quilting in 1989, after spending many prior years doing a variety of handwork. A co-worker introduced her to quilting and her first project was a wall hanging using a Debbie Mumm pattern. Then she began taking classes at a local fabric store and became hooked. After retiring from teaching elementary school, Jaxine owned a quilt shop for 10 years in Juneau, Alaska. In 2007, she sold the store and moved to Poulsbo when she became active in our guild.

The quilt with the bars, a more contemporary design, was quilted by Marybeth O’Halloran with a different quilting design in each block. You get the gist of this wonderful quilting sampler from the detailed shot. Thank you Jaxine, for sharing your beautiful quilts.
