Need to make something quick for your Valentine? Julie at TheCraftyQuilter.com has designed this cute, no-sew project that uses scraps of fabric and takes less than an hour to complete.  Make your Valentine smile with this adorable piece of "HeARTwork."


Kathleen Ware, Quiltmaker, a documentary from 1979 directed by Sharon R. Sherman, highlights Kathleen's daily life and her interaction with customers and family members.  Watch as she takes a commission for a Lone Star quilt and completes the project using cardboard templates and her sewing machine.  She then hand quilts it, using a frame suspended from the ceiling. It is a fascinating view of an individual folk artist at work.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought you might need some help with gift ideas.  Every Monday, for the next three weeks, we will have an idea for a quick-and-easy project to make for those you love.

Are you looking for a Valentine's Day gift for that special cook in your life? How about a set of heart pot holders?  We found these cuties, which can be whipped up in an evening, at Made by Me.




Hey Everybody! I'm heading to the great state of Delaware in April! Join me and special guest, Alex Anderson, at my Super Quilt Seminar in Newark, April 16-18.

I urge all quilters living within the green zone to attend. Alex and I will share information for quilters of all types: traditional to contemporary, beginning to advanced. The seminar requires no supply list and there is no sewing! How can this be productive? How does a quilter learn in a seminar environment? I guarantee this style of teaching will keep you riveted to the lessons and inspired when you leave! There are only a couple of weeks left to register at the Early Bird price so don't miss out! I look forward to meeting you there!  -- Ricky


April 16-18, 2015 at The University of Delaware, John M. Clayton Hall


Tickets Available
It's time once again to reserve your tickets for the next set of TQS tapings. Here are the dates, guidelines and policies for requesting tickets.

Studio Location:

4100 E. Dry Creek Road
Centennial, CO 80122


Dates: Tuesday-Saturday, March 24-28, 2015

Two shows are taped each day. Attending the entire day is required.

Cut-off date for requests is March 1, 2015, or when sold out.

Who can get tickets?  Free tickets are available for Basic and Star members.

Free tickets are offered on a first come, first served basis. To reserve a ticket, you will need to provide the following information:
          Full given name
          Profile name
          Email address

Please specific about which day you would like to attend.  If you are requesting tickets for more than one person, you will need to provide this same information for each additional person.

All requested tickets MUST be used. Please do not request tickets if you are not committed to attending. Seating is limited to 50 and we do not overbook the seating area. Therefore, unused tickets result in empty seats, which diminishes the energy of the show and denies someone else the opportunity to attend. If you have reserved tickets that result in a "no-show" or "partial-show," you will not be eligible for tickets to future show tapings.

Due to the overwhelming requests, tickets will be distributed for one day of attendance only. Confirmation of tickets will be in the form of an e-mail document.

To make your request for free tickets, or to get further information about tickets and our ticket policies, e-mail lilo@thequiltshow.com . Please note that your e-mail request for tickets should state the word TICKET in the subject line in order for it to be processed in the order it was received.

**Large groups should contact Lilo directly at (817) 367-9363.



This year, we started our Show Techniques program, so you can practice techniques featured on our weekly shows.  For each episode, we provide an 8" finished block for you to try out the featured artist's technique.  We recommended that you create a notebook for the practice projects, or save them to stitch into this wonderful sampler quilt of your learning journey.

This week Sally Collins shows you how to make a Square in a Square block with precision.  Sally has provided excellent step-by-step guidance to help you achieve great results.
