Who Is Jodie Davis? 12


 

You will ask – everyone always does – so here goes…

Yes, I’m known foremost for quilting. I’ve written over thirty books on crafts and quilting, produce and host or co-host two monthly TV series on the internet TV station I am president of, QNNtv.com. (I call myself “Chief Quilting Enabler”.) I discovered quilting when I was 16 and am so lucky to work in that wonderful world.

But quilting is just one of the many wonderful parts of my life, my Rubber Duckie World. (Which you can read about here.)

And where is this world? Well, I’d argue that it’s in my heart and mind. Thankfully my heart has found home in a groovy mid-century modern butterfly roof house in north Georgia where my mind is free to be. It’s a magical place, from the visitors who come by to offer up memories of fishing the lake with their grandpas, to the Blalock family who built a house of love and have accepted me – the next caretaker of this tucked away bit of heaven - into their family, to my neighbors – characters all – each one has a role in this Rubber Duckie World. But none more so than the four kitties and four horses who reveal themselves in subtle ways every day, and are teaching me volumes about myself and life. We are all blooming. It is a Rubber Duckie World!

Or better yet on Facebook or Twitter or share the love on Pinterest. And get the fuller scoop on me on Linkedin.

P.S. The hunka munka kitty is Mr. Possum. Rescued by Liz Nichols, she agrees that he and I were destined for each other. He’s a kitty yes, but really an owl in a Maine Coon kitty fur suit. He’s an author, a story teller, and an orator. The first night he came to live with me he told me stories all night long. Yes, I buy into his version of history. Who wouldn’t? I mean, look at him! More from Mr. P. latter. (My dearest friend on this planet, Lee Warhurst, is not a fan of possums though is majorly of kitties (they converted him in his old age), so I call my boy “Mr. P.” in his presence.)

      Hi Terri,
      You’re in luck!
      I am just getting final pricing from the factory to order a new batch. I’ll be selling them through a Kickstarter campaign. Not to worry if you’ve never done one. I’ve partcipated in a few to see how it works and it’s super easy.
      Have you on my list to contact. I’ll also keep updating via Kickstarter and Facebook.
      Thanks so much for being cuckoo for quilting!

      Terri, I’ve put you on the list. I’ll have final pricing any day now and will sent out an email blast, post of Facebook, and contact each person who has expressed an interest. Am so tickled that you’re cuckoo for quilting too!

    Jodie,

    Our website above should be “live” in about 10 days (although the It lady has told me this before). Could you please advise me on the best way to contact designers like yourself to (a) donate a pattern for the website and (b) spread the word. The idea is to have hundreds of patterns for women worldwide and from the funds raised on the website start more Patchwork Easyas Ministries in Salvation Army Corps. worldwide to promote quilting and help people in need. On the horizon will be a “Quilt & Cushion Bank” to give to people in drought, flood, bushfire etc. through the nearest Salvatoin Army Corps. I am not well known or have the contacts that you must have but need help. Would you be kind enough to contact me please

    I just found your blog!!! And I am so glad I did!! First of all, my husband and I had a Maine Coon kitty for 15 years before kidney disease took her life! She ruled our house! Her name was Snickers becuase she was all the colors of a Snickers Bar!! More than anything she loved to eat plastic bags and thread!! Her love of thread nearly killed her! For the past 12 years I have done very little sewing but have been sewing since I was 10; I’m not 57. I come from a family of quilters but I was never interested. My mother is 82 and still teaches quilting every week at her local community college! She has taught for 20 years!! One night in the middle of the night I realized I should quickly follow my mother’s foot steps, quilting and teaching when I retire. I could even possibly take her spot when she retires! One problem…I don’t know how to quilt!! So I am teaching myself with her long distance assistance (we live 200 miles apart). I have even secured my first teaching assignment this fall at the community college where I have been employed for the past 7 years!! So, I am doing a crash course in quilting and having a ball!! I am SO excited! Your blog and books will help in many ways!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!!

      Hi Lee,
      The quilting bug is the best! I bet your Mom is tickled beyond words that you’ve finally caught it!
      My other advice is to join a guild or better yet a Bee. Quilters love to share and help other quilters up the learning curve, so they’ll give you a lot of hands-on help and lead you to things you might not find on your own.
      Enjoy!
      Jodie
