Our New Show With Rayna Gillman Debuts Today!
It's A New Day Today, and That Means a Brand New Show!

Rayna Gillman has been blazing her own quilt-making trail since taking her one and only class. A rebel who left the ruler and focus on precision to others, she began cutting freehand. Along the way, she cut up and re-sewed unsuccessful blocks that became stunning quilts, printed her own fabric, and taught countless others how much fun improvising can be. And don’t miss Ricky’s sure-fire tips for piecing an 8-Pointed LeMoyne Star and Y-Seams.

Learn from Rayna in Upcycling Orphan Blocks and Improv Strip Piecing with Rayna Gillman | How To do Y-Seams with Ricky Tims, which debuts today!

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Pleasant "Pheasant"
"Pheasant" by Blair Stocker

Pheasant was created by Blair as a way to show her students in her upcycling classes that it was okay to include a cut-up piece of cross stitch or needlework. Blair bought the needlework part of this quilt at a thrift store, and while she thought the entire piece was beautiful, there was not enough of a border around all four sides to include the whole design in a single quilt. So she cut it up and let it be little windows in this one. The other fabrics, the reds, corals, and pinks, were chosen as value-based designs from her stash separated into lights and darks.
