Featuring: Jean Wells

Posts On: December 15, 2019 (Free from December 23, 2019 through December 31, 2021)


Our TQS Quilting Legend for 2019 is the one and only Jean Wells. Jean, founder of the Stitchin' Post in Sisters, Oregon and author of over thirty books, welcomes Alex and Ricky to her home for a tour of her garden and provides a walkthrough of the many quilts she has made. Throughout the show, Jean expresses her love for the process of color exploration, gives a tour of the Stitchin' Post, shares a mini-history lesson of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, and then gives her own thoughts on all the different things she has accomplished in her long lasting career. You don't want to miss a wonderful end to another great series here at The Quilt Show!

Show Information

Jean Wells

From Chapter One:

Jean welcomes Alex and Ricky into her front garden to discuss the changes to her house since our last visit. As they tour her home, Jean shares information about the quilts she has made, including her very first quilt.

From Chapter Two:

Jean talks about the process of color exploration. A wide ranging topic, she covers how she finds her color resources from photos in nature and how she selects fabrics based on color and what the quilts call for.

From Chapter Three:

Alex, Ricky, and Jean visit the Stitchin' Post, the shop that Jean started over forty-four years ago. Here Jean talks about the beginning and growth of the Sisters Quilt Show. Valori Wells then joins in the conversation and talks about how the passing of the reigns has been handed to the next generation.

From Chapter Four:

Jean then shares her own personal thoughts on her legacy and talks about living and surrounding herself with art, her early years growing up in Redmond, Oregon, and all that she has achieved and accomplished in her storied career.

After Set:

We finish the show with Jean sharing the fasicination she has had for rocks ever since childhood.

Jean truly is a quilting legend. I’ve had the opportunity to take several classes from Jean, and she shares so many ideas and techniques that you leave with a new perspective of yourself and quilting. Congrats to Jean!
