The Uncommon Quilter


Knitting quilt

Making a quilt a week

From January 1, 1999 to December 31, 2005, Jeanne made one small quilt a week, completing a total of 365 quilts. The purpose of this project was to play and experiment, and to give herself the time to create at least one quilt each week, no matter what else was going on in her life. The rules were:

Each year she changed sizes, as a new challenge. The quilts ranged in size from as large as 8"x10" one year to as small as 4"x6" another year, and they would always be whole cloth. Each quilt could be made any time during the week, from Sunday through Saturday, and as she worked each week, she could not throw out the orginal piece and start over with a new one, even if she didn't like the result. There were no limits on what techniques or materials I could use.

Since 2007, Jeanne has been working on the 12 x 12 x 12 Series, which is similar to the Weekly Quilt project, but is a monthly project instead.
