Nancy J. Martin has written numerous books on quiltmaking. She and her husband, Dan, founded Martingale, which is widely recognized as the foremost publisher in the quiltmaking industry.
We were saddened to hear of the passing of Judy Hopkins on March 9, 2011.
Judy was one of our most prolific and bestselling authors, having published 17 books between 1989 and 2011. Her collaboration with Nancy Martin, 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts, has sold more than 131,000 copies. Her Around the Block series, which ultimately became 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks, was the design source for probably tens of thousands of quilts around the world. Judy was a major figure in the quilt industry for decades. She will be greatly missed.
To honor her memory, Judy's family is commemorating her work through a website and blog. Family, friends, and fans are welcome to post comments and share stories about Judy's quilts and the creativity she inspired. Visit JudyHopkinsQuilting.com.
I was not too impressed with the content of the book. Many of the patterns are basically the same just rotated or set on point. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Lorilynn Morrow
