Welcome to the BadAss Quilters Society,
I am the founder Maddie Kertay and believe that attitude is everything and quilting is just as much a lifestyle as it is a hobby. Here you will not only find sassy support for the hobby you love but lots of advice, education, and acceptance to make your day brighter. This is a “quilt as you are” sort of place, you are welcome here. We are your people.
We believe in the Democratic Nation of Quilting ™ and as BadAss Quilters we aspire to be:
- Confident enough to embrace our own style without the need to mock the style of others.
- To at least aspire to fearlessness in our craft as well as the authentic, compassionate and ethical treatment of others.
- To be generally opposed to dumb-ass behavior that separates, denigrates or makes light of another’s work or life.
In short, were are opposed to being a jerk about most things and about quilting most of all. Please note that we are currently in Beta-Mode with our new layout so things might be a bit bumpy. Grab a drink and poke around as we get things working just right!
There are a couple of different ways to be part of this tribe.

One of my pledges for the new year was to enact changes in my life that would make my life simpler in order to gain more time for the things I loved, like sewing and quilting. One of those ways was to cut down the number of items in my life that I needed to care for....
Holy crap, how did I get to be 49 years old? And where did these 6 children come from?? I have pretty clear memories of Kindergarten almost yesterday - I RULED at playing Post office and now I am a grandmother... what a crazy ride this has been! And yet here we are...
So I have been cleaning up my studio and that means lifting up piles of fabric, projects and patterns and unearthing a good number of "lost" seam rippers. Honestly this is not even all of them which is pretty funny for someone who strives to be more of a minimalist...
