I'm Afton Warrick, stay-at home mother of three and wife. I also assist Gail Garber, put in a few hours at Quilts Ole, teach Continuing Education at UNM, and design quilt patterns for my Craftsy shop. Before children, I enjoyed working as a first and second grade teacher.
I'm originally from Cheyenne, WY, home of Frontier Days. Currently, I reside in Albuquerque, NM, home of the International Balloon Fiesta. I have no intention of moving from my two-story stucco home, EVER, as that would unveil the true extent of my fabric
Here in the southwest, I'm known for designing a New Mexico Centennial block of the month,
|Enchanted New Mexico|
my Route 66 Quilt Challenge entry,
and designing the 2012 raffle quilt for the New Mexico Quilters' Association, of which I was president the following year.
My blog has evolved in purpose from a scrapbook of quilts to a means of collaborating with others in the pursuit of creativity and friendship.
Quilting Mod is my forum for inspiration, sharing my quilting experiences, and journaling my growing understanding of what constitutes modern quilting.
