Waves, Villages, Landscapes, and a Giveaway... What Do They All Have In Common?

Hello Everyone,

Unique post title, don't you think? Well this post is in celebration of my newest Podcast Episode 14!! I had the opportunity to sit down with my friend Karen Eckmeier. For those of you who are not familiar with her, she is a talented quilt artist, teacher, designer, and award winning quilter.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Karen for many years and first met her when I scheduled her to come lecture at our guild and teach a workshop. I took the workshop and was just fascinated.

Anyway, I would love for you to get to know her better too.



When she came over to do the podcast she gave me this beautiful little postcard as a thank you! Actually I was thanking her! This was made of some of the leftovers from her quilt Positive Energy 4. Beautiful!!


Here she is... She is just as bright and sunny as she seems in the picture. But you really want to get to know her better by listening to the Podcast! Not only is she bright and sunny, but she is generous too! Look what she brought for me to giveaway to 3 lucky blog readers!! Oh, did I mention, she publishes her own patterns and books....


Prize one... Layered Waves Book and Silly Snowman Pattern.


Prize two... Happy Villages Book and Colorific Quilters Pattern.


Prize three... Accidental Landscapes Book and Turquoise Turtles Pattern.

Anyone of of these will be a terrific addition to your project list!! The books are all autograped too! So how do you get entered, you ask???

1. Leave me a comment here and let me know if you have heard of Karen or not.
2. Go check out Karen's website and come back and leave a separate comment telling me what you like best.
3. Listen to the Podcast HERE or in iTunes and then let me know if there is anything more you would like to know about Karen, leave a separate comment.

So you can do all three, or just one, your choice. The more you do the more chances to win. Also, it is really good feedback for myself and Karen! But you MUST have a way for me to get in touch with you (i.e.... leave your e-mail if you are a no-reply blogger).

The giveaway will close at the end of the day on June 23! So go out and tell all your friends, share some inspiration.

***The Giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered***

Oh, also thought you might like to know, I am trying to go a little techie here. This Podcast is enhanced. Which means that if you listen to it from your computer, you will actually see images of what we are discussing. Or if you download it to your iPod/iPhone (it must have a video screen) you will be able to see the images there as well!! Let me know what you think!

Until Next Time...

On Karen's website I especially love the student gallery. The quilters all look so pleased to have created such lovely projects.

connie said...

I have never heard of Karen but from what I see so far I am going to have to listen to the podcast and visit her website. Thanks for showing us her work!!!

Paleo said...

love her books. this is the first time I have come across her work. My mom loves landscapes and would totally dig a landscape quilt and my daughter has decided everything non a mammal or a bird is a turtle. Lizards, frogs, ants, spiders, they are all turtles. and it would be cute to make her the turtle quilt. though

Paleo said...

Looking at her site I love all of the circle of friends quilts. they are so cute

connie said...

Oh, my I love all of Karen's work. Now I want to take a class from her. I love the gallery and her landscapes and curves call me.

Annette said...

I didn't know Karen before but I'm sure glad I do now. Her designs are absolutely awesome!! Thanks for letting us know about her.

Annette said...

It is so hard to choose just one favorite of Karen's. I could look at her work forever! The Colorific Quilter's seems extra special though...its like what this quilt blogging world is all about.

luckymom said...

I Just love the accidental Landscape of the mountains

Poppyprint said...

I have seen Karen's work on the cover of Quilting Arts, I think? A collaged village - it must have been hers as it is very similar to her book cover. Gorgeous work! I look forward to the podcast sometime on the weekend. Thanks for sharing your lovely books and patterns, Karen!

Poppyprint said...

Karen's got some beauties on her site! My fav is "Dune Grass". I'd love to have her come to our guild for one of our seminar weekends...fancy a trip to Vancouver, B.C. Karen?

Karen said...

I've never heard of Karen's work before seeing it on your blog. Such beautiful creative work. Thanks for the giveaway!

Karen said...

I just checked out Karen's blog and am so inspired by her work. I particularly like the accidental landscape quilts and her circle of friends quilts. I'd really like to win the snowmen pattern to make for friends for Christmas.

Willa said...

I had not heard of Karen.

Willa said...

I did visit the web site.
I like the circle of quilters, accidental landscapes--well liked it all.

The lizard on her banner may be my favorite.

Stephanie said...

The great thing about blogs is learning of "new" quilters/artists. I have not heard of Karen. Thanks Jackie for always leading us to good places.

jenimelinda said...

Karen's work is *so* beautiful. Thank you for sharing her talents with us!

jenimelinda said...

My fav part of Karen's website? The gecko on the title bar! He is too cool!!! I'm envious of her skills.

Quilter Kathy said...

I have heard of Karen's book of Happy Villages, but didn't know she had so many other books and patterns. I will go check out her website.

Cathi said...

I hadn't heard of Karen but now that you've pointed me at her website, I'm fascinated!! I love the Layered Waves book and the Lucky Lizard patterns!

Karen is new to me, so thanks for the podcast with her and the introduction to her books and patterns. I'd feel privileged to win any of them.

Lynn D

ledamewood said...

What did I like at Karen's site? I can't select just one thing, but the liturgical quilts were spectacular. How lucky is that church to have such creations on display. Circle of friends - Silly Snowmen wasn't there, so that pattern must be brand new. And Layered Curves and Peaks, those make my heart sing. I do have a question, the lizard quilt on the home page beside Karen's picture, I couldn't find that in the site, is it new, did I miss it? I want to know more, the colors are yummy.

Thank you for introducing us thru your blog to her!!!!

cathy said...

I decided to take a class from Karen in Long Beach last year, just because of the description in the catalog. It was a great experience. She was terrific and I was fascinated by the technique and the variety of results. I bought the Happy Villages book.

cathy said...

I visited Karen's website and I saw for the first time her circle patterns. Love the whole idea of these, such a contrast to the accidental series. cathyquilt@gmail.com

Cory said...

Jackie, I have not heard of Karen before. I am liking what I see on her website. Thank you for introducing me to her. Take care and God bless, Cory

Shirleyquilts said...

Yes, our guild hosted Karen many years ago, and I suggested her as a speaker to you since I KNEW you'd love her.

Shirleyquilts said...

I like the Layered Curves and Peaks but am most intrigued by Karen's liturgical quilts. I need to make a 250th anniversary quilt for our church, and these quilts certainly provide inspiration.

Shirleyquilts said...

I really enjoyed the podcast with Karen. It was a great interview, and I can't think of any outstanding questions. One thing I learned, though, from her Web site and the podcast is that she has a book about layered curves. I took this class eons ago, and I have wonderful Ireland quilt to show for it. Won 1st prize in the art quilt category at our local quilt show one year.

Cherie said...

I clicked over to Karen's site and I love her Karen's Nature Abstracts,especially Dunes and Willow. Jackie, I'm so glad you made a special point for us to check out her Liturgical Quilts. They are phenomenal!

Cherie said...

I listened to the podcast and so enjoyed it. Amazing that she self publishes. I'd be interested to know how many pieces a year she averages.

Kate said...

Jackie,
I have heard of Karen- I made one her small quilts ages ago. Lots of fun.
Love the Layered Waves book- looks intriguing!

9patchnurse said...

Yay! I love Karen's work. I just finished making two little farm landscapes using her book. The new book looks very intriguing and I have always wanted the villages.

9patchnurse said...

I love everything on Karen's site but what really caught my eye was the market tote bag. It has newsprint fabric (I love that stuff) and fruits and vegie fabrics. I have lots of those and I love the idea of mixing them in with the newsprint. A definite winner!!

Judy Alexander said...

Yes, I have seen Karen work before and it is great!

Judy Alexander said...

Checked out her website and love her work.

pinsandneedles said...

I have not heard of Karen before. Thanks for introducing me!

pinsandneedles said...

I like her cityscapes quilts...being a city girl myself. But I am intrigued by Kaen's circle series.

Debbie said...

Yes, I had heard of Karen and seen her patterns advertised.

Debbie said...

Karen's layered curves quilts in the gallery are pretty cool.

Debbie said...

I listened to the podcast (as usual :):). Don't remember if Karen shared anything about her family. Also, it's always interesting to hear about travels around the world by teachers.

quiltmom said...

I had seen a copy of Karen's book Layered Waves in one of the quilt magazines but was not familiar with her. I will check out her website and I really like the items in your second giveaway.
Thanks for hosting such a nice giveaway.

quiltmom said...

Karen sure has some beautiful patterns on her website- I really like her circle series- especially the one with children.

knitwish said...

I enjoyed your podcast interview with Karen. I had already flagged her Villages article in AQS a few years back, as a technique I would like to try, so as she described her work, I knew exactly what you were talking about. I would also like to try the Waves technique. I liked the dancing lizard on her website, as well as the beautiful quilt galleries. Thanks for the great interview!

Anita in Florida said...

Simone de Klerk said...

I guess I visited her website (O: My favorite is her Happy Villages book showing fabric collages, but I would also love to do her workshop Scrappy Layered Log Cabin. Wow, and incredible piece of work. Too bad I live too far away )0:

Rafael's Mum said...

The side of Karen's work I like best is definitely the side that drew me to the accidental landscape book; the coast lines and beaches quilts! I really love those and would love to make one of our coastline!

johnsonarlinda@yahoo.com said...

I have really liked what work I have seen of Karen's work. Being a landscape quilter myself I really like her accidental landscapes.

I just visited her site and as a marine scientist I love the dune grass quilt! So pretty!

Wonderful artist. The first quilt that I actually kept for myself was her landscape design.

Visited Karen's site and love the landscape series. Really just loved everything.

I have never heard about her before. The intervju was great, and I loved her landscapes. Hugs Jofrid
