ace & jig: Community Quilt Raffle

How I love ace & jig. Community is always front and center. They have been working on another community quilt project. What a wonderful and creative way to show community support as well as resourceful with their left over fabric.

ace & jig are raffling 5 of their community quilts with donations going to the following organizations: Black Lives Matter, Movement for Black Lives, Marsha P. Johnson Institute, Loveland Foundation, and Color of Change.

Here is a little background about each quilt: one-of-a-kind ace&jig community quilt. each of the 36 squares of this quilt were made lovingly from leftover ace&jig textile scraps by a different volunteer from our community, as part of our commitment to reducing textile waste. 

you will receive 1 raffle ticket for every $10 donation. Runs through June 22nd. Please check out ace & jig for more information and to learn about their quilting history.

A Textile Love Affair With ace & jig

It is all about collaboration!  This is absolutely true with Carey Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, the two ladies behind ace & jig.  They met years ago as fashion design interns then fast forward to being reunited over their absolute love around antique textiles.  ace & jig is where pattern playing is at its best!  The more you experience the pieces the more you fall in love.  Every piece has its own personality and is waiting to be worn and enjoyed.  The colors and patterns can make even the most conservative lady branch out of their comfort zone.  ace & jig are timeless pieces that you build upon.  They don’t read in the moment trend and they don’t read boring!  They are effortless.  You can layer, wear alone, and mix and match any piece.  ace & jig has no rules except that you must love what you own if not then swap it with another ace & jig fan.
