Behind the Scenes with Modern Quilt Studio
Quilting in the Present
“We’re always asking ourselves this question: What does it mean to be a quiltmaker here and now?” Weeks says. FunQuilts is a visible part of the mainstream, with its quilts appearing in national magazines, as American Folk Art Museum pieces, on the beds of inns and private estates, and even on the cover of a math textbook. They see their role teaching and coaching people to find their voice. “It’s so much more invigorating to give people the design skills to execute what’s in their minds, to give form to their ideas,” Bill says.
