Show 1301 - New Directions in Quilting: Embracing the Possibilities

Featuring: Jean Wells

Posts On: July 1, 2013


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.

Thank you Jean for sharing your art quilt thoughts. You are speaking to my heart of beauty before art theory and color wheel. I learned those things and they are in the back of my mind when creating any type of art, but I don't specifically think of following 'the rule'; I know them and by being creatively open, the rules intuitively are processed.
