When I learned about the ‘Love’ quilt that the Floyd Quilt Guild, of Floyd VA, created I had to know more. The VA tourism board has used ‘Love’ many ways over the years from VA is for lovers to the new “LOVE’ with a heart logo. Many of the rest stops have giant letters in front. Being that I live in VA this makes it even more special to see this amazing quilt and hear it's story. Sallie McCauley and Gwen Goepel were the organizers of having the quilt made, I love hearing the story!

Mary Kerr always comes up with pretty amazing projects, often incorporating vintage textiles and vintage quilts or quilt ‘parts’. You know .. those pieces you made but didn’t use? Quilters have done this for years and Mary takes those parts and uses them in her quilts. Her book ‘Twisted, Modern Quilts with a Vintage Twist’ is brilliant! She not only took quilt parts, made unique tops, but then asked well known quilter to quilt the pieces. She shares their process for taking that blank canvas to the next extraordinary level. I’m excited to hear about the project from Mary and get tips and how to do something like this myself… maybe we’ll even get an insider story out of her.. wink!

He has since collected many styles of quilts, including a love of 70s quilts. He is also the author of Modern Roots, 12 projects inspired by patchwork. I love old quilts and knowing their stories.

I bought some of Tula Pink’s first fabric line was Full Moon Forest, the first with free spirit fabrics was Parisville and I bought that too… now 21 lines later is Tabby Road about to come out. What I found is that not only was her fabric interesting and detailed with images woven in, but there is also a story. For each Line Tula creates an entire universe of stories to bring all the prints into life. If you have a chance to hear her talk about how she creates, go! She is also an author and of course designs quilts to showcase her fabric.  Today we are going to talk fabric, of course, but also about other things she does including giving back to the industry we both love so much. Tula’s on for the second half of the show so we have time to really chat!

<p class="western"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">A topic every single quilters wants to know more about, how to store .. and then FIND our stuff. Being creative often means we can live with a bit (or a lot) of creative chaos in our space. I personally love to organize and dream of having someone give me tips. My dreams came true when Carolyn Woods wrote the book just for us ‘Organizing Solutions for Every Quilter’. As a professional organizer she has this nailed and is giving us tips today!</span></p>

    Karlee Porter is an artist that paints with a needle and thread. Her award winning quilts, such as Shimmering Symphony are seen in shows across the country and you might have watched her videos or been lucky enough to take a class with her. I asked Karlee to talk with me about the type of quilting designs she does called Graffiti quilting. It think it's a very freeing way to learn to freemotion without having the structure other designs require.

    The love a vintage machine might live in every quilter. Brenda Wolfensberger and her husband James took that love further and created an amazing documentary on vintage machines called Still Stitching. What I love is that is a really comprehensive documentary about the passion for vintage sewing machines told through interviews with eight collectors and restoration specialists. These people bring the love of old machines to life when they share their insight and personal stories about the vintage sewing machines.
