NW Quilting Expo 2010 Part Two: Jean Wells, Featured Quilter

I have to admit that when I turned a corner at the quilting expo and saw a Jean Wells quilt, I immediately felt a rush of quilting bliss!   If you are a fan of Jean Wells or have her book, Intuitive Color and Design, you know just what I'm talking about.  If you don't own Intuitive Color and Design, then all I can say is, "Why not?!?" Jean is a designer, instructor, gardener, proprietress of The Stitchin' Post in Sisters, Oregon, founder of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, and the author of over 27 books.  Seeing her quilts featured was when the quilting expo really started getting exciting for me.
