Jeff Rutherford has been quilting since 2002 after he randomly discovered an art quilt exhibit in New York City’s Wave Hill Park.

He took his first quilt classes at A Notion To Quilt in Shelburne Falls, MA. Here’s an article about Jeff’s quilting journey. Jeff is a member of the Northampton Modern Quilt Guild, the Hands Across The Valley quilt guild, the QuiltGuy online group, and the Men Who Quilt Facebook Group. He attends QuiltGuy quilting retreats twice a year.

You can find Jeff and more photos of his quilts on Instagram.
