September 11 – Jolene Mershon – Trunk Show
Jolene is one of our own Guild members, and she is an amazing quilter. Jolene Mershon has lived in Mansfield, Texas for 30 years with her husband Jim to whom she’s been married for 57 years. She has 3 grown children who also live in the DFW metroplex. She has 4 all grown up grandchildren who she has made lots of quilts for. She lived her early life in Ft Worth.
Jolene started sewing at age 7 and has never stopped. She started quilting in 1991 but when she retired from AT&T in 2000 she was able to spend most of her free time learning all the different techniques of quilting. She quilts both by hand and machine.
She loves appliqué, both by hand and machine and foundation as well as regular piecing. She also works in wool as well as cotton. She’s won a number of blue ribbons as well as place ribbons, including a Best of Show and several Judges’ Choice ribbons. In 2016 one of her wool/cotton quilts was chosen to be part of the Primitive Quilts magazine special exhibit for the Houston Quilt show and the Chicago Quilt show.
