Victoria Finlay Wolfe does modern classic like no other. She often takes a traditional block and puts her own modern spin on it. I remember finding Victoria’s work in her book titled Double Wedding Ring Quilts and I was blown away. She really made me see that using fabric can really make your quilts look unique. I wanted to get to know more about her dive into the sewing world, what she had going on with her fabric collections, opening up a brick and mortar store in NYC, and how she handles the juggle of it all. We also chatted about her new book that just released called Modern Quilt Magic, which is full of seriously cool projects that look harder to make than they are hence the magic part. I can’t wait for you to learn more about Victoria and if you are anything like me you won’t be able to resist checking out her shop!
Cheryl Arkison is someone I could chat with all day long about sewing, quilting, fabric, family, and how I love warm weather and she loves cold weather. She just inspires me to look at my process and think about it in a new way. We chat about her new fabric line with Connecting Threads called Tag. She also shares why she thinks her time in the morning being creative helps her to stay creative even when she may want to take a break. I need to adopt her process in some way because I think it would help me to stay in the creative zone. I tend to stray sometimes and getting back on track can be difficult. I wanted to know all about her process of sorting scraps. We really just had a great chat and I can’t wait for you to listen. Cheryl always has some great tips and advice.

I think writing a book has always been a dream of mine so when I have friends who actually do write books I can’t wait to ask them all of the questions. I want to know the details because I can only imagine the process being difficult but so much fun when it is finished. So Carole Lyles Shaw is self publishing her own books and I think that is something I have heard a lot of buzz on lately. We talk about her process and why she chose to self publish. She is one modern quilter that is on fire. Sarah and Jen are two friends I met at Quilt Market in the Fall. We instantly hit it off and chatted the whole weekend. They have teamed up to co author a new book, Transfer Embellish Stitch – 16 Textile Projects for the Modern Maker. It is a book full of fun projects for all kinds of creatives.
