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.

Did I mention that there are over 19 thousand of us?
