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!

American patchwork Guest Roseann Kermes guest

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!

American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Joan Lucchese March 2015

Ever since Flickr started I've gone there to look at quilts. At groups and individual flickr pages, there is always inspiration that rivals Pinterest!  I saw Joan Lucchese photos and was excited about her quilts and her process. I love hearing how people quilt and Joan and I are going to talk about paper piecing and her design process!

American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Suzanne Marshall March 2015

When I was falling in love with applique, some of the specatcular and unique quilts that I loved at shows were made by Suzanne Marshall. I loved reading her inspirations and the magazines had articles about her work, she was ground breaking as her quilts looked very traditional, but really were not. Step up and you'd find bugs in that Baltimore looking block or a fantastical display of blooms that were not from a real flower, this is why I was drawn to her work. She makes things from her heart. I finally get to chat quilts and techniques with Suzanne, it's going to be so fun!
