Guest: Angela Yosten
Topics: working with linen
She says: "I've always loved using linen in projects just because it gives a very heirloom quality look to it. It's very durable. It's a great fabric to use, and it mixes well with really any kind of fabric. I just iron it just so it doesn't have that wrinkled look on it while I'm working with it, and just so I know I'm working with accurate sizes. When I cut, I just make sure it's starched well, and I use the best press sprays. When you wash it, it wrinkles up with the rest of the cottons in there, and it looks kind of warm and cozy."

Guest: Kathy Doughty of Material Obsessions
Topics: quilting inspiration, fabric selection
She says: "I will often spend hours leafing through antique quilt books. I do that because I'm attracted to the individual that I see in making those quilts. I want people in the future to understand who I am by looking at my quilts. That's the challenge that we put forth. When people feel comfortable enough that they start taking a little bit of chance, I think that's when we see the originality come out."
