Show 1613 - A Quilter’s Journey

Featuring: Renae Haddadin / Barbara Polston

Posts On: June 22, 2015


Renae Haddadin recounts an amazing quilting journey, which took her from hand appliqué and hand quilting in this country, through Jordan and back again, and then on a new odyssey of longarm quilting. She bought her first machine without knowing how to use it, but now drives it like a pro. She demonstrates her unique “road map” for designing quilting patterns by dividing them into grid-marked sections, making what looks complex become much more manageable. She shows her quilts, her quilting, and the gorgeous wedding dress she created based on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. We then journey to Arizona, where Barbara Polston shares her love of miniature quilts and vintage linens. Let’s get going!

A few years ago, Barbara was a guest speaker at the Phoenix quilt guild I attended. Her presentation was exceptional and it was wonderful to see her quilts up close and in person. We have many vintage doilies, handmade by my husband's great aunt, that I am anxious to incorporate in to quilts because of Barbara's inspiring and beautiful work.

Great Show! I really enjoyed Barbara's passion and especially appreciated how she said the fabric (doily"s) spoke to her. Her good heart shines through her work.
Thank You.
