From Chapter One:

Deborah began quilting with a Eleanor Burns books, but soon moved to appliqué. She loves working w/ simple shapes (i.e. bowl, house, chair) in her work. She is a list maker, which led to her to develop the workbook Head, Heart and Hands. The workbook helps quilters to think about and develop their work during the building process. Alex and Ricky look at her quilts.

From Chapter Two:

Deborah shares three techniques for easy to do surface design to make commercial fabric more unique and unusual.

From Chapter Three:

Deborah shows how to approach a quilt project using a design guideline. The design guide helps get over the fear of the blank page. From selecting a fabric palette to composition choices along the way, Deborah breaks the process into manageable and easy questions as she builds a piece.

From Chapter Four:

Julie takes us on a history lesson with quilts from the 1820s to 1950. As a quilt historian who studied American History in college, she was drawn to learning about the lives of ordinary women. Julie shares quilts and interesting details from the time period.

After Set:

Ricky and Deborah are huge fans of the musical Hamilton. They share fun stories and discuss why the musical has had such a big impact on them.

I loved the segment on Deborah! She gave so much information and thoughtful directions. Her book is a must have for helping with composition and design. And I’m also a Hamilton fanatic so I loved that segment as well. It was fun to watch!

Love Deborah's demo. How does she finish her quilts? Are the edges faced , bound or other?

Great show! I especially loved the historic quilts from Julie Silber. (I have an iPad Pro and don’t have any issues watching the show.)

ditto with the stuttering video ... had to re boot multiple times ... took 2 hours to watch the show

why would I be out of time when I go to comment when I am still trying to watch the show?

Thank you so much for the show featuring Deborah Boschert. She was very generous to share so much information about her design principles. Please bring her back. Can't wait to receive her collage book & workbook!

The waste made from sequins is called Punchenella and is wonderful to use on Christmas trees and wreaths.

As much as I appreciate the old textiles I really think you did Deborah a disservice making her go through her segment of the show so fast. You really could have filled the whole show with just her. You barely touched on how she chooses quilt designs and embellishments. It was a shame. You need to have her back and have a whole show on fabric collage.

I really enjoyed this show. I plan to purchase Deborah’s book and appreciated seeing the antique quilts. Wonder if Ricky or Alex purchased one.

Interestingly, the ad portions have little hiccups but never actually stop like the rest of the video.

I am using my MacBook Pro and it stutters and stops every 20 to 30 seconds. Hard to keep a consistent thought going and that's a shame. Debra has a lot of good information, but this is difficult.
