I was immediately drawn to the fabric designs of Alyssa Thomas of Penguin & Fish. They have adorable tiny animals and other whimsical bits. The I found out she also loves to embroider and has a delightful book called "Sew & Stitch Embroidery". Alyssa joins me to chat about all things creative today!

Christen Brown is the author of a book on embroidery and one on ribbon work. Her creations are stunning! She describes herself as an artist, a designer, a technician, a crafter, a writer and a poet. I'm super excited to learn a bit about the type of embroidery work she does. 

Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Joyce Weeks sept guest

Joyce Weeks is the designer behind "Geoff's Mom" quilt patterns. What I like about Joyce's quilts are that they are inviting. Like inviting me to touch and to make! Joyce works in a beautiful palette of toasty colors with lots of reproduction fabrics. She creates both pieced and appliqued designs. Let's meet Joyce this week and learn more about her work!

Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Leah Day sept guest

Leah Day is back to  talk about scale - how dense the quilting is and how that effects the design and finished look of the quilt. I also have some questions for her on marking our designs, it's going to be a great chat!
