Yep, Alex made a depression-era quilt for the movie The Persian Pickle Club which has yet to be completed.  The book was written by Sandra Dallas and tells the story of Rita, a new town resident of Harveyville, Kansas, during the Great Depression. Rita is accepted into The Persian Pickle Club quilting group and they begin to teach her how to quilt. Alex made the quilt using reproduction fabrics and used a great zig zag border. She demonstrates how to do the binding on that border in Show 1905: Animal Portraits with Barbara Yates Beasley.

A lifelong lover of animals, Barbara Yates Beasley says, "it is all about capturing the expression of the animal and finding its soul, that makes a photograph or a quilt look realistic."  Watch as she creates that realism in this time-lapse video.

Star Members can learn how she does it in Show 1905: Animal Portraits.
