The Quilt Show visits the RK Quilt Barn

The Quilt Show came to visit the RK Quilt Barn! I got to share what's so "unconventional and unexpected" about the quilts in my collections and the story of how I came to fall in love with quilts. In the episode, you'll also get to hear about quiltmakers Sue and Ashley Nickels. 

Episode 1808 airs on Sunday, April 10th, 2016. You can watch the trailer below. The episode will be available via The Quilt Show's website here.

Thank you to Shelly Heesacker and everyone else at The Quilt Show!

The Quilt Show's Daily Blog features U&U

It was great to chat with someone just as excited about quilts as I am. It's always a pleasure when someone sees these quilts as I do -- as "bridges between the traditional quilts of the past and the new modern quilts, which are coming to the forefront of quilting." There is a recognition of the soulfulness in these quilts. Thank you!
