Some of you may be too young to know the impact or perhaps even the name of Jeffrey Gutcheon, but he did have a huge influence on our quilt world when contemporary quilt making was nearly unheard of.

It's with sadness that I pass along the news of his death after a seven year struggle.  His obit is here.

Additional stories about this Quilters Hall of Fame personality can be found at this link and here too.

Take the time today to give your loved ones a special hug.....

Yup, I've been quilting long enough to remember Jeffrey Gutcheon and his part in quilting low these many years ago. Always one that I admired. Didn't know about his musical career though - often these things go hand in hand. Thanks for sharing. What a difficult time for our quilting community.
