Kate Colleran and Elizabeth Veit Balderrama are the design team of Seams like a Dream. Kate is joining me again to talk about their newest book 'Smash Your Precut Stash'. I think talking about using up what we have is one of my most popular topics, then we have room for NEW! It's like making free quilts right?
Shelly Pagliai of Prairie Moon Quilts has some amazing projects going on this year, one being that her quilt is in the Kansas City Star newspaper each month! I'm so excited about that quilt and asked Shelly to join me to talk about it, fabric picking, her club and more!
Designer Jen Kingwell from Australia has an amazing style. She mixes patterns with patterns with patterns for completely addicting quilts designs that I want to make! She has patterns, a new book and a fabric line with Moda. Plus you can follow her blog and check out her shop online.

Cindy Lammon is the designer behind Hyacinth Quilt Designs. She is the author of several books with Martingale including Simply Modern Christmas and Gathered from the Garden. I love her clean style and I am excited to chat about how she achieves that look she is so well known for.
If you have been quilting during this last year, you will have heard of the Row by Row Experience! We quilters LOVE to have fun, and what is more fun than a quest to visit as many quilt shops as you can collecting things? … nothing is! Janet Lutz thought up the Row by Row fun and she is going to tell us about it, and what's coming up!
I'm always excited to talk machine quilting and author Christina Cameli. She has written two books on the topic and has a class at craftsy. She joins me again to have a long chat on machine quilting designs, tips for successfully quilting your own quilt and we'll even chat a bit about her interest in Wedge quilts.

Connie Kauffman's newest book is called Little Gems, 15 paper pieced miniature quilts... ALL using up scraps! So many of you are loving mini quilts right now and Connie has great projects for you. I am excited to hear how she approaches mini quilt making, scrap use, and she has some great tips for us on paper piecing small things.
I first meet Caroline Hulse of SewCaroline at the trade show. She is a clothing pattern designer and has fabric lines with Art Gallery. What I love is that her clothing is for adults and they are things we can make! I'm always drawn to clothing that is doable as I first learned to sew by making clothes, which I did for many years. Caroline has some tips for us today on how to get started on clothing and how to work with non cotton fabrics.. knits and wovens. Can't wait!
I have followed Gemma Jackson's at her site Pretty Bobbins Quilting, and at her Instagram for awhile. I love her sense of style, her approach to quilt making, and the beautiful added layer of quilting she adds to a quilt top. Gamma lives in Australia and I'm so happy to have her join me to today to talk about her works and color!
Roseann Kermes of Rosebud's Cottage is back to chat with me about making ourselves a better quilter. This is our hobby and we all approach it a different way. Some of you love perfection, and really want to embody that in your quilt making. Others want to create is a more free flowing way. But we all want to be better to some degree. Roseann and I got to thinking about that and came up with Five things that we think help us all be a better quilter!
