Alpine Quilt Group July 2009 - Jina Barney

34 comments
Finishing up my report of Quilt Night from last Tuesday are the quilts from Jina Barney. Jina is a member of our talented Alpine Quilt Group and has been since the beginning 20 years ago.
Jina (on right) brought a legacy of quilting to our town and now to producing a fabric line with Christiensen's Wholesale and their Alpine Fabrics. Above she is showing her first line of fabric.This sample quilt is made with Jina's first fabric edition. It was exciting to hear about Jina's years of quilting and the success it has brought her to this point.
This flimsy is made with one of the new lines Jina is producing. She uses designs from scrap booking paper and the designs are then made into fabrics. I've long since thought so many wonderful designs like this could be fabric. And Jina is doing that. Clever.
Jina brought a beautiful sampling of her 20 years to show along with slides from Pittsburgh Quilt Market and samples of her up and coming 9 lines! Wow.
Below discover Jina's lovely creations. She's living a dream.
Jina started out only hand quilting but now quilts all her own quilts on a short arm Pfaff on a frame. She's good!



















It was a lovely night and we all cheer Jina on as she represents Alpine as a local success. I knew Jina had talent but before her trunk show I just had no idea how deep that talent runs!
