Nain's Magic Room Jo Moury's professional quilting career began when she entered and won a pattern contest sponsored by Quiltmaker and Electric Quilt.

When Life Gives You Scraps, Make Quilts! After suffering a devastating pregnancy loss followed by cancer last year, Heather dove back into quilting, saying “My body and health felt out of control but quilting and designing gave me the opportunity to take some control of the chaos.” After hearing such an inspiring story of triumph and positivity in the face of illness and loss, we wanted to hear more about her design process in making this “Rainbow” quilt to celebrate their first child, due to arrive in 2020.
