Jody Beck


Jody began quilting in 2000, and by 2003 she began publishing her quilt patterns as Jody’s Jems.

She responded to requests to teach her techniques, and is now possibly best-known for her Stack and Slash pattern, “which is for quilters who like unplanned projects,” compared to the pattern’s popular cousin, the Stack and Whack pattern which she labels “for perfect people.”

A good day for Jody includes quilting with friends or traveling to Lancaster’s Green Dragon with her husband, Jim.

Jody and Jim live in Pottstown, PA, where she is also involved in teaching Precepts for Life Bible studies and leading a weekly Moms in Prayer group.
