Congratulations to Orlando MQG Vice President, Debra Jalbert on QuiltCon 2021 !

We are happy to announce that Orlando MQG Vice President Debra Jalbert, won 3rd place at the 2021QuiltCon Together awards ceremony. As guild members, we’ve followed along as this gorgeous quilt has taken life!

Her quilt ‘Grafitti’, entered in the small quilt category, is 13 x 14 inches and is an example of raw edge applique. An example of her working process on this technique can be seen on the Orlando MQG YouTube Channel .


Debra made her first quilt in 1992,  but became obsessed with quilting in 2012, challenging herself to create and design her own unique quilts. She enjoys using most every piece of fabric and considers herself frugal; using the smallest pieces has influenced the way she designs and works. 

She teaches technique-based classes such as tiny piecing and improvisational design. Her class 

"Improvisonal EPP," is in the catalog for this year’s QuiltCon Together. 

You can see Debra on Instagram @madeofhonorquilts, where she provides tips on long arm quilting. Her partner in quilt making is her much loved dog,  Bear, who is well known to many guild members,  and has his own hashtag ; check out #bearneedshisownhashtag.

An active member of the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild and the MQG, she has had 14 quilts juried into Quiltcon since 2015 and has been featured in Quiltcon Magazine.

Congratulations Debra ! 

Bear helping out !
