Trailer 1703 - Lisa Calle / Youngmin Lee

Lisa Calle was once described with admiration as a woman who “could make quilting a competitive sport.”  Her specialty is longarm quilting, and soon after mastering it she was winning top awards for her work.  Lisa studied Textile Management and Marketing in school, then left a corporate job to raise a family and work at a quilt store.  When designing, she carefully plans her longarm quilting patterns, starting with the center of the quilt and using tracing paper to sketch and audition designs.  She works in one area at a time, and develops fillers that enhance and support the main areas.  She is a great fan of echo quilting and radial symmetry.  She also quilts feathers into every project.  Later in the show, Artist Youngmin Lee shares her love of Pojagi, traditional Korean patchwork.  These square pieces were originally used to wrap, store and carry items, including quilts and clothing.

Show 1703: Quilting the Bones & Beyond debuts on August 3, 2015.
