Guest: Annette Kennedy

Topics: art quilts

She says: "It was when my husband retired from the military in 2001 and we moved to Colorado that I got exposed to art quilting. That’s when I decided to start working with my photographs, and as soon as I started making pictorial quilts, I wanted to paint on them to increase the details and the visual depth and dimension in the quilts."



Guest: Jennifer Mathis of Ellison Lane

Topics: quilt piecing tips

She says: "Don’t be afraid of paper piecing. It’s really not scary. You’re just sewing through paper, and if you can sew on a straight line, then you’re all good. You don’t need fancy paper. I print my templates on cheapo, recycled copy paper -- it’s really user-friendly."



Guest: Elizabeth Dackson of Don’t Call Me Betsy

Topics: sewing short cuts, machine quilting tips

She says: "I prefer spray basting. I like shortcuts. Spray basting feels like a big fat shortcut. You don’t have to crawl around on the floor on your hands and knees and pin through three layers. It’s so much faster and so much easier."
