Guest: Leah Day

Topics: machine quilting tips

She says: "What do you want your quilt to look like at the end? If you’re wanting a soft, cuddly finish, like an antique look, crinkly and wrinkly, go with a 100% cotton batting. No matter how densely you quilt cotton, it’s always going to soften. If you want something flat that’s going to hang well and that’s going to look like a piece of art, go with a 100% polyester."

Guest: Jennifer Sampou Hensley

Topics: designing fabric

She says: "After doing thousands and thousands of prints, I have this mosaic of ideas—of graphic images, of soft painterly florals, of very detailed basics, and of novelties. If you were to spiral that around, you end up getting a full page of a lot of variety that in the end works all together."

Guest: Roseann Kermes of Rosebud’s Cottage

Topics: working with vinyl, party crafts

She says: "We used a product from Thermoweb that is an iron-on vinyl to make coasters. We used leftover charm squares to cut two 5-inch squares (one for the front and one for the back) with a piece of cotton batting on the inside. And then we pressed the iron-on vinyl to the right sides of the fabric. Then we just sewed around it with a 1/2-inch seam allowance and used a scalloped cutter to trim if off after we sewed it, just to even it out. They were really fast."
