Quilting Arts TV, Episode 708 Review by Shelley Coombes

I love Jean Wells's work and was excited to see that this video included her gorgeous detailed piecing. Unfortunately, Jean was rushed through that part of the demo and wasn't able to show this technique...very disappointing. It wouldn't be impossible to figure it out but there's something so inspirational about watching a master at work! Mary Hettmansperger's quilt ideas are interesting and fresh and gave this novice quilter some food for thought.
