Love Maria's style of piecing with solids. Thanks TQS for sharing this interview. I will check out her blog. She seems like a really nice, down to earth gal. Would love to take a class from her.

Love seeing SAQA friend and quilt sewing mentor, Maria Shell on the Quilt Show. Her quilts are dynamic in every respect. She is a true inspiration to many of us who LOVE piecing!
