June Jaeger, Log Cabin QuiltWorks
Yesterday Marilyn and I had the best day! We drove about 9 miles outside of Prineville to June Jaeger's place to visit the designer and her studio. The drive through farm and ranch country was wonderful. Upon arriving we were greeted by Willow and June, who is the sweetest person to open her home and studio to us in blogland. June is one of 3 sisters, Jean, June and Judy (who lives in Texas) and, they are all artist. June of Log Cabin QuiltWorks started quilting at the encouragement of her sister Jean Jean Wells Quilts during the long wet valley winter of 1979. From that first quilt she continued forward to designing her first pattern while working for Daisy Kingdom in 1980. Missing her country roots and slower pace of life she moved to Pendelton where she owned the Log Cabin QuiltWorks store from 1992-1998. Now, calling Prineville home she continues to design patterns and works at the Stitchin Post in Sisters. When you are in her company you can really tell that she has been a horsewoman her entire life. She and Marilyn spoke and understood each others love of horses...they are both REAL horsewomen! Marilyn and I have already decided we are going to take the "Friends" class next year at the Quilter's Affair. It is the class where you make a quilt of your best friend (Enzo). Be sure to check out June's website and enjoy the slide show!
