Alpine Quilt Group

Posted by administrator on Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

We had our monthly Alpine quilt group meeting last night and our own Jina Barney was asked to be the quest speaker. It was interesting to see and hear about her quilting journey as she presented her 50 plus quilts.  Jina is one of the original members of this Alpine quilt group that was started 20 years ago by a handful of  ladies that wanted to learn the art of quilting. They met frequently at the little red church on main street in Alpine.  We still meet at this church, but now this Alpine quilt group ranges from 50-70 people monthly. Anyone is welcome to attend.  I am amazed at the talent in this small corner of the world.  There are some truly incredible women that make award winning quilts.  We are always treated to a show and tell each month.

This one is my favorite of the night. 

Jina talked about her quilts, but also spent a little time on the process of manufacturing fabric ....specifically Riley Blake Design fabric. Jina and I work with our artists to get their artwork to production.  She designs all of our free project sheets and has her own line of clothing patterns for children. Jina is always upbeat and creative and we are glad to have her part of Riley Blake Designs.

  1. I love the eagle scout quilt. Is there any way I can get a pattern of the quilt? I have 5 boys and would love to make it for my boys receiving their eagle. Hi Elisha. The eagle scout quilt was created and designed by Jina Barney and there is not a pattern for it.
