Matt Reese is the new owner of the wonderful quilt show Road 2 California. I want you to meet Matt, some of you already know him from his years of working the show with his grandmother. And my curiosity was about bringing in all the show quilts to hang for the show. What is the process? How do they track it? Matt is going to tell us how they do it at R2C!
If you have not meet Evy Hawkins yet of ‘A Bit of Stitch’ you are going to love her! She is super creative and does a lot of different projects. Today we’ll talk quite a bit about the Sashiko machine by Babylock. Evy has been using it for very fun techniques, things you might not have thought of.

Jane Sassaman is an art quilter and fabric designer. Her exuberant quilts and fabric designs have attracted worldwide recognition. As an art quilter, Jane’s designs are always recognizable for their bold color and graphic style. In fact, her quilt ,“Willow”, was named as one of the one hundred best American quilts of the 20th century. For sixteen years she has also translated her unique vision into exciting designs for FreeSpirit, a company producing fabrics for quilters. Like her appliqué quilts, Jane’s fabrics are nature inspired, large scaled and colorfully enthusiastic!
Her exhibit at the AQS show in Grand Rapids in August is called ‘Celebrating 16 years of Color and Creativity’ which is a survey of Jane’s FreeSpirit fabric collections through the quilts she has designed to promote and showcase the fabrics potential. Many of these quilts can also be seen in her book, Patchwork Sassaman Style and her website
I love finding designers doing projects that are fresh and different with techniques that may have been around for years. Anita Bradshaw does fun things with her ‘no-bias’ stained glass that are super creative! I am pretty excited to learn more about her and the style of quilts she likes to make.
I have been eyeing this darling Honey Bee pattern and saw that the kits are on sale.
