We couldn't imagine a more appropriate guest to kick-off Series 1300 than artist, teacher, author, and legendary shop owner, Jean Wells, who returns with an update on her continuing shift in creative direction. After sharing her favorite sources of inspiration, Jean shows the important role of value in building her quilted compositions, her approach to construction, and how she overcomes the occasional creative rut. (Look for Jean’s "What If I Get Stuck?" worksheet on the Projects page.) We wrap with a tour of Jean's beautiful home and studio in Sisters, OR, and her great tip for giving your quilt a portrait finish.
Jean teaches the importance of line in design and how to apply it to quilts using nature as an inspiration.
