Learn Jacobean Design and Trapunto with Mary and Garry Olson | 4-Patch Block from Me and My Sister Designs
(Show 1806) Mary and 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 how she uses trapunto to increase interest. 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 quilter cred. 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!
