Stash Talking

Stash Talking

Rachel Wetzler’s been letting us pick her brain about everything that goes into her fascinating, detail-oriented quilts. Of course we had to ask her that all-important question – what’s your stash like? “In my studio I have a double-wide closet that my husband [Read More]

Rachel Wetzler is great to work with. She’s very generous in sharing her knowledge. This time she told us a few things about how she creates such realistic animals. First she searches magazines, books, or online to find images that will work. “My giraffe’s body [Read More]

Resolutions I Can Keep

This year I’m being realistic about my New Year’s resolutions. They are quilt-related, of course – after all, what’s more important? · Resolved: no more pressing over plastic-headed pins · Resolved: no more fusing things to the ironing board cover. · Resolved: no [Read More]
