Quilter: Jessica Prosper-Bohannon, of Euphoria Jessica fame
Location: Portland, Oregon
Nickname: The Fastest Needle in the West
I met Jessica at Sewdown Portland, which, thank the Lord, was not a sewing race. If it had been, Jessica would have left the rest of us in the dust. We were trudging along to make an intricate block or a mini-quilt top, most of us about halfway there… and then we’d look over at Jessica. And she was DONE. Done, and putting the binding on her Marcelle Medallion, which she’d probably just whipped up the week before. And we would shake our fists at her and yell, “DARN YOU, JESSICA!” and then we’d all go drink afterwards, because that’s how we roll in the MQG.
But anyway, Jessica is gracious enough to share her quilting story with us, and we’re happy to have her on RST. Be sure to check the link at the end — Jessica’s got a giveaway she’s running on her blog! (more…)
