Elaine Quehl is a Canadian quilt artist, teacher, and fabric dyer who is best known for her dramatic and colourful nature-themed art quilts featuring luscious foliage (particularly hosta leaves), flowers and trees. All fabric used in her artwork is hand-dyed by the artist to provide the wide range of values she employs to create depth, drama, and contrast, and to read like nature's dappled light. Each art quilt is also abundantly textured with free-motion stitching. Elaine's work has been juried into, and selected for awards at, numerous international and national exhibits and has been widely published. Most recently, she was a featured artist in Art Quilt Portfolio: Natural World. Elaine is a graduate of Carleton University (B.A.Hon.) where her Major subjects were Anthropology and Religion. She continued on with graduate studies, completing coursework in Religion and Popular Culture, but discovered the world of art quilts before finishing her thesis. Elaine is keenly interested in the way that we as humans make meaning, find our place in the world, and the factors that affect our creativity.
My quilts celebrate the visual drama that is present in the natural world. I aim to evoke the emotion, awe and wonder I experience when I first encounter my subjects. Often described as bold and sensual, my work employs contrasts of light and shadow to intensify visual impact. Foliage, trees, flowers, and nature's cycles serve as metaphors for my inner world and allow communication and connection with the world through universally-understood themes of personal growth, wonder, self-acceptance, loss and healing, joy, and the cycles of life.
Welcome to a very special show tonight. You may remember at Christmas the songs we played on our show that was performed by the Franklin family. Wild Bill works with Keith and found out that they do not just have musical talent, Keith's wife has written songs, and is a budding author in the family! The release of "THREADS OF TIME" moved up the charts with Amazon faster then Bill can eat hot pancakes! Christian romance is a topic that is pretty foreign to Bill. You could say that romance in general is a foreign topic for him! That did not stop us from asking the authors to be a part of our show. What do we mean by authors. "Threads of Time" is a collection of seven Christian romantic novellas, about a very special quilt passing through time. This quilt was intended to grace the marriage bed of a young couple, but never fulfilling its original purpose. It travels through many hands and decades, lending comfort to its temporary owners before being passed on. A "Thimbleful of Peace" is by Constance Shilling Stevens, "Tattered Hopes" is by Ralph Vogel, "A Night With No Stars" is by J. Michele Franklin (Keith's wife), "Mending the Widow’s Heart" is by Marjorie Vawter, "A Thread of Hope" is by Darlene A. Dodds, "Frayed" is by Eileen Key, "A Patchwork Promise" is by K. Marie Libel. You can download this book on Amazon, and I think there is a hard copy release coming out due to the success of this book already. These writers worked under the support of Kim Vogel Sawyer, which is well known and loved for her books. We probably will not have time tonight, but we will get them back to talk about their new publishing company.

Some of the language of quilting is also kind of fun and we'll talk about that as well. Different ways of piecing the top of the quilt, the parts of a quilt, the best kind of fabric for quilting and whether or not you can travel and continue on quilting as your hobby (yes, you can).

Quilting bees of bygone days have taken a whole new twist, thanks to the internet. The term bee was used to describe a gathering of peers to accomplish a task. And that’s certainly what the 12 collaborators of the 12 x 12 International Art Quilt Challenge have done – a virtual quilting bee. Join me along with four of the participants: Deborah Boschert, Diane Perin Hock, Nikki Wheeler and Kristin La Flamme. In this special 80-minute show you'll discover how it all came about, the teamwork, the inspiration, the logistics and the resulting book. This is sure to be a special one.
Edna Patterson-Petty is a life long resident of East St. Louis, IL. She is a graduate of SIU-Edwardsville, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and Master of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art, and a Master of Fine Arts in Art Therapy. Artist Statement
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be an artist, even as a child, although I did not know the term artist and what it entailed. But I do remember the warm, comfortable and satisfying feeling that I got every time I did something creative or had creative thoughts. Some odd years later, that satisfying feeling has only magnified. I know that my creative ability is of divine inspiration, because I dream art, I feel art, I get excited when I am around art, and through my creations I reveal my internal world.
Some of my art quilts have been published in numerous books and catalogues, and on a few occasions my art has also been on the cover of books. I know that my creativity have not yet reached its full development, because I continue to learn daily. I love to experiment with the arts and include found objects, photo transfers etc., to see what works and what need work.
My art quilts have been exhibited in galleries nationally and internationally, and I have been exhibiting my art - work since the 80’s and have had a number of solo shows as well as group shows.
