Week 6 Begins with Alex and Ricky

Alex and Ricky are up today with some great techniques for marking your quilts.
Everyone has their favorite method of marking their quilts. But sometimes a debate arises over the "best" tool. Alex and Ricky discuss their Favorite Marking Tools and Why (technique) - watch Show 1803 - Click on Chapter 1. Freezer paper, painter's tape, disappearing thread, and more, do you use any of these to mark your quilt?

Don't remember what needle you left in your sewing machine? Keeping Track of your Sewing Machine Needles with Sharon Pederson (tip) will help you remember. You just might need to head to the stationery store first.

One of the best parts of Transform Your Quilting is that you can join in anytime and go back and re-watch any of the tips or techniques. Just make sure you are LOGGED IN as a Star Member. Then, open your newsletters and follow the links. It’s fast learning and lots of fun.

Textile Talks: A Change of He(art) - San Diego Artists Charlotte Bird and Marty-O
Going In New Directions

Change is usually a good thing. It helps us switch up our routines and expand our horizons to better ourselves. There has been a lot of change in the last couple of years and we've all handled it in different ways. For artists Charlotte Bird and Marty-O, "they each have had significant solo installations at the Oceanside Museum of Art, a regional art museum in San Diego County. The installations stretched both out of their comfort zones in different ways." This week's Textile Talk is a discussion with both artists about those changes and the new directions they may be taking them in.

Register today and watch when this episode airs this Wednesday, September 7, 2022, at 2 PM EDT.

New In The Store - Banyan Classics from Northcott
A Stunning Collection of Banyan Batiks

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Log Cabin That Won't Let Go
"Locked In The Log Cabin" by Jane Dunnewold

Locked In The Log Cabin was Jane's very first quilt that she made around 1978. Based on a traditional log cabin design, Jane knew her limitations and left piecing behind soon after this quilt. Its title comes from the soft sculpture figure that adorns the quilt in the bottom right square, looking to break free from its log cabin prison.
