Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio John Adams July 204 guest

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!

From sparking your inspiration to having that 'wow' moment that turns around your creative life, today is going to be full of creative energy.  Carrie and Christa are both super high energy and positive forces, you are going to love this show!

Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Carrie Bloomston guest

I first found out about Artist Carrie Bloomston's work when I saw her fabrics with Windham. They have a collage feel, like she ripped up the newspapers, painted them and then magicly turned them into quilt fabric.. wait.. I wonder if that IS what she did? I had spot with Carrie in her booth at the show and she is inspirational! I asked her to come on the show and talk about her passion, which is creativity... something we never tire of learning about.

Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Christa Watson guest

 Christa Watson has been quilting for nearly 20 years. She and I started following each other's blogs and I am excited to have Christa talk to me about how quilting making has changed and how her own quilt making has changed. I think that happens to so many of us and the journey never ends... I find it fascinating to hear how people move from one style to another or from one focus to another. She has also been entering her quilts in shows and I want to learn why she is, and her her share the experiences with us. It's going to be a lot of fun to explore change with Christa

I've taught many workshops and some of the ones I love the best are the workshops I've taught on a cruise ship. There is nothing like a group of quilters on vacation in the sun for a week during the brutal dead of winter... it's a party from the moment they set foot aboard! Deb Luttrell and her team run a very successful quilt shop and have awesome travel business with tours for quilters.  Deb's joining me to talk about what a quilt cruise is like and she'll also share what she is doing in her new Craftsy workshop!

Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Rachel May guest

Author Rachel May's book 'Quilting with a Modern Slant' intriqued me. I couldn't wait to get a copy to see the collection of quiltmakers and quilters she curated into a book of modern 'slants'.  From my idol 'Anna Willams' to newer quiltmakers like Debbie Grifka, she weaves the story of her inspirations into a book that has great variety of style, with a thread of modern in them. Today I'll find out how she developed this group of quiltmakers to share and she'll give us some tips on how to 'find our people'.

Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Pat Meinecke guest

Years ago one of my office mates and her husband would take a week of vacation and travel to the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC to learn a craft. She would come back with wooden spoons and he made musical instruments.  At the time I sewed and was learning stain glass, I didn't quilt yet. I loved hearing about the week long workshops she went to and the schools amazing program of teaching the folk crafts.  Today I have the Resident Quilter, Pat Meinecke, from the John C. Campbell Folk School here to tell me about the history and the quilting done there!
