Teacher Spotlight

MJ Kinman

I’m MJ and my passion is creating gem quilts using freezer paper paired with traditional piecing techniques. It’s a powerful technique for any quiltmaker’s tool kit regardless of their inspiration. (Hint: this is NOT foundation paper piecing!)

I’ve created new classes and lectures for guild members in 2022, available in-person or via Zoom. In addition to my popular “Bite Size Gems” class, choose from “Dames & Diamonds” and “Color Play: Beyond Color Theory”. (I share details in the video below.)

Also new for 2022 are two lectures. Jump-start your creativity with “Playing With Pixels”, and meet my newest art quilts and the spectacular National Gem Collection jewels that inspired them in my lecture “The Smithsonian Series”.

And if you like Block-of-the-Month programs, check out “Diamonds & Drama Queens 2022”. Our first pattern drops this week, so subscribe today.

Let’s fill 2022 with gems and joy. Be well and shine on!
