Pat Sloan: Free patterns from my guests Heidi Boyd, Robin Long, Rita Verroca, and Terry Kamzar!
I love meeting new artists and Heidi Boyd's designs are adorable! From her whimsical soft dolls and animals, to her newest fabric line with Red Rooster, you are going to love her work! She is an artist, an author and very crafty lady. I'm excited to get a few tips about making soft dolls and animals today!
I am always excited to hear about a designer that has come up with a solution for making a tricky block. Robin Long of Robin Ruth Designs has a clever solution to make Mariner Compass blocks without paper piecing or templates! One of the early blocks I learned to make was a Mariner's compass where I drafted my own compass and pieced by hand. Can't wait to learn how Robin has made it easier for us!
My Love of applique was sparked by several things and one of them is that I have gotten to see a lot of Baltimore Album style quilts living in Virginia. That is what my guild was attracted to years ago when I started to quilt. Finding Rita Verroca's work has been exciting to me! She is a master at applique and I know we are going to be inspired and learn a lot from her today.
Terry Kramzar uses fabrics in the most amazing way. Her quilts are exciting to look at. Some are filled with images like incredible flowers, and others are more contemporary and abstract. What draws me to Terry's work is the color and her approach to creating. She teaches this and today we get to learn a bit about how she works her color magic!
