Maggie Ball

Location: Bainbridge Island, Washington

I have been quilting for over 25 years and enjoy using a variety of techniques, creating my own designs from elements of traditional patterns. My quilts have been exhibited both locally and nationally and I travel the world to teach quilting.

Teaching quilting seems a natural extension of my passion and I find it rewarding.

My first books teach quilting with children, a subject that I’m passionate about. In my book third book,Traditional Quilts with a Twist, I’ve tweaked traditional patterns to make over 20 new designs. I selected three old favorites, Trip Around the World, Ohio Star, and Bear’s Paw on which to base my variations. I love to design and play with patterns and hope to convey this passion through my books. My latest book, Bargello Quilts With A Twist, continues to build on updated design ideas and re-thinking the traditional quiltmaking process.

I am trained and certified by the Northern California Quilt Council to judge quilts and wearable art. Contact me for a judging résumé.

    Hi Maggie, are you the teacher who is interested in coming to Alaska to teach? A friend of mine mentioned your last name today, but I didn’t catch the first name. Coincidentally, I have a friend, Therese, who is just relocating to your area and would love to touch base with you. I am sure it would be great for you to network with Therese, and will give you her contact information if you would like to meet her. She can answer most questions about coming to Alaska and is a treasure trove of information. Let me know what you think.
