Did you know......
I have a lot of recorded shows before I worked with American Patchwork & Quilting magazine?
Guest - It is always exciting for me to meet designers who take one product we know and use it in new ways. Designer and author Elaine Schmidt takes ribbons into the world of quilts and makes them sing! She is going to share all her quilt with ribbons secrets with us today www.elaineschmidt.com
Guest - Shari Butler is the creator of adorable fabric lines with Riley Blake,.. to which she adds wonderful patterns that show off her fabrics! I'm excited to have Shari here to talk about designing, quilting, and even embroidery!.
Guest -When I first started to quilt I bought the book "The American Quilt: A history of Cloth and Comfort" by Roderick Kiracofe. This book set me on my journey of loving the old quilts and wanted to know about the quilt makers who came before. Roderick's love of quilts and his books have been worn thin by many a quilter. http://roderick-kiracofe.com/
Author and quiltmaker John Adams has a wonderful sense of color and balance. His new book with Martingale is called Beyond Neutral, Quilts inspired by Nature's Elements. John and I are going to talk about the inspiration behind the quilts and I want to dig a little deeper into how he selects fabrics and the process he uses. He has a really interesting way of explaining that.
I love a great story, and Judy Edgar's captured my heart. Her mother Relia Skinner started a quilt pattern business in 1976 called Kiddie Komfies. She had to retire the business and now she and her daughter Judy decided to bring the patterns to life again for us to enjoy!
Bonnie Hunter joins me today to talk scraps, surprised? The author of several books with Kansas City Star on scrap quilts, and an amazingly detailed system to organize her scraps, she is a machine of quilt making. Bonnie is going to talk about her newest book 'More Adventures with Leaders and Enders' and give us some insight into how to work with color and get more done when sewing on the road.
