Her work spans folk art, to liberated quilting making, to minimalist styles. Her newest book, I believe #30, is a retrospect of her pieces called ‘A common Thread’. A coffee table book full of amazing photos of her quilts that span her work to this date. Gwen curated the collection and I can’t wait to talk about quilting ‘then’ and ‘now’ … and mostly about how she she developed as an artist through the years. =================== visit American Patchwork & Quilting at http://allpeoplequilt.com Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/apqmagazine Visit host Pat Sloan at http://www.patsloan.com

Free patterns!.. My guests today are Kelli Fannin, John Kubiniec, and Alison Glass! I loved Kelli Fannin’s work the first time I saw it and that thought got locked in when I found out her website is called ‘Seriously It looks like it Needs stitches’.. super fun name, super fun projects and she has some incredible design skills! http://thatlookslikeitneedsstitches.blogspot.com/ =================== John Kubiniec of Big Rig Quilting is an author, longarm quilter and traveling teacher. He has an amazing sense of color which I know you’ve seen in the many quilts he has had published in magazines over the years. John’s first book is a ‘New Spin on Drunkard’s Path blocks’ and I love it! He is going to share some tips with us today for how to use this basic block in unusual ways. https://bigrigquilting.com/ ================== I have been a huge fan of Alison Glass and her fabrics, quilts, embroidery for a long time. She has developed lines of fabric that are so timeless and blend so with what we have that you want to collect them all. Her batik lines are beautiful and now she has embroidery and other fun things.. like removable tattoos that have glitter.. love them! http://alisonglass.com/ ==================== visit American Patchwork & Quilting at http://allpeoplequilt.com Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/apqmagazine Visit host Pat Sloan at http://www.patsloan.com
