Mary & Garry Olson are a quilting couple.  Garry designs the quilts (he majored in art) and Mary sews them.  Many of Garry’s designs are based on a combination of Jacobean, Persian and Celtic influences.  He demos how a design takes shape, from an initial sketch to a finalized drawing.  Mary takes Garry’s designs and makes a pattern, often adding appliqué elements.  She shares using trapunto to increase interest and blue painter's tape to create cross hatch designs.  Mary claims she sews at the speed of a turtle, but she and Garry are winning top prizes with their quilts.  

Next, sister team Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson of Me and My Sister Designs have a long history:  they have owned a quilt shop together, written books and patterns, and designed fabric lines for Moda.  They share a clever four-patch technique that will impress you!
