This fall she showed her new fabric line and some amazing freeform machine 'sketching' with her needle and thread, it's so cool! We are going to chat about designing fabric and how she thinks about her freehand stitching.

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!

American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Krista hennebury March 2015

Most of us love to sew with friends, be it at a bee, or a retreat. When I read the intro to Krista Hennebury's book 'Make it Take it' I saw that she has been running retreats for quilters for 10 years! I thought it would be fun to learn about retreats from an expert and chat about her book full of projects designed by herself and her friends, they are very clever projects indeed!

American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Sue Reich March 2015

I have several of her books and one that I particularly love is the book about quilts with 1,000 Pieces.  Sue is going to chat today with me about what she has learned about quilt makers long ago, it might surprise you!

American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Valori Wells Feb 2015

I am a HUGE fan girl of Valori Wells style... her fabric, her books and her business sense. Her newest book is a look into her world as a maker and gives some wonderful ideas. I loved chatting about her process, how she makes time, what photography means to her and sewing/running a business with small children.
