CraftSanity Episode 156: Sherri Lynn Wood Talks Improv Quilting

by jennifer


If you’re sad about missing QuiltCon, cheer up  because QuiltCon is coming to you during this episode featuring Sherri Lynn Wood, author of “The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting & Living Courageously.” I interviewed Sherri before she left for the convention where she is teaching and signing books. (Somebody please give her a high five for me!)


This is Sherri’s studio space. Check out those great design walls!

I started reading Sherri’s book a week and half ago and got so inspired I ended up whipping up a quilt within five days. (Check back here on Sunday for the big quilt reveal!) During the interview we talked about what inspired Sherri’s love of improve quilting, her process, how to build a great fabric stash that includes solids and prints, and then of course we talked about her lovely book which I’m really enjoying. I will be writing more about the book and sharing progress shots of my quilt  in an upcoming post, but I wanted to get this podcast out during QuiltCon to give all the folks at home a chance to feel like they’re part of the action. :  )
