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!
