Jill Schumacher, Quiltmaker to the Queen
National Award winning machine quilter, teacher and author, Jill began making her first quilts at the age of 12. Having been an art major, Jill has dabbled in many different art forms. It was not until many years later, that Jill was introduced to the art of machine quilting on her domestic machine in 1997. She fell in love with this method of quilting and still gets a thrill with each heirloom quilt that she completes. Her third machine quilted quilt won the Best of Show at the Siskiyou County Fair in 1998 and, she went on to take Second Place in the state level competition. This recognition started Jill's journey into competitions and later, the inception of her quilting business, Quiltmaker to the Queen. Jill has taken classes across the country from Master Quilters and is working toward her own certification as a Master Machine Quilter.
