Pat Sloan: Christina Cameli on freemotion quilting, Kristin Rodriguez on working with Burlap, and Monica Lee on Creativity

For the show today I'm excited to have really creative topics. Christina Cameli shares about freemotion quilting, Kristin Rodriguez works with Burlap (even in quilts!), and Monica Lee is an amazing designer that is able to really help people with their Creativity roadblocks. 

Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Christina Cameli Jan guest

Christina Cameli is a quiltmaker and new author. Her book "First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting – 24 projects for Fearless Stitching" with C&T, is not just a beginners guide, it is much more. When I ask quilters what they want to learn more about, it's free motion quilting. And when I ask them why they don't do it more, they tell me they are afraid. Afraid of messing up. Christina has some great tips for us!

Pretty fabric at a show will stop me dead in my tracks, I bet you can relate! When at the Houston show I was going by the Fiber On a Whim booth, and not only did the hand dyes look amazing.. but they looked different. Upon taking a closer look I realized they were burlap! I've been seeing a lot of burlap on the internet but mostly tan. Nothing in these juicy colors. Kristin Rodriquez and her mom Jan Girod told me all about using burlap and I now Kristin is here with me today to share with you!


Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Monica Lee Jan guest

I discovered Monica Lee's Smart Creative Women website when she interviewed one of my quilt friends. I was hooked on her super friendly personality, her attention to detail in her videos and her artwork. Monica is an glorious artist with an amazing style. She has designed fabric lines, cards, and paper. She has illustrated books and a zillion other things.

What I love about Monica is her spot on creative input and feedback. She looks at art (and creativity) in a way that can see what we might be missing when we look at our own work. She runs workshops, and the lastet is Smart Creative Style, which I took last year with her. I asked Monica to join me to share about creativity, about what we can do as quilters to find our creative sweet spot... plus a lot more!
