Behind the Scenes with Modern Quilt Studio
Love, Learn, Serve
For Bill and Weeks, quilt designing is the lifestyle they chose after leaving the corporate world. “Total commitment makes it work,” Weeks says. They also are committed to their daughter, Sophie, who is increasingly eager to “play” with fabrics. Though frustrated by their many ideas and lack of time to pursue them—Weeks and Bill are content with their course to “love, learn, and serve”—especially as it applies to quilting. “Do a little of these daily,” Weeks advises, “and you’ll be happy.”
