Show 2801: Barbara Black / Lilo Bowman - TQS BOM 2021 "Color My World"

Featuring: Barbara Black / Lilo Bowman

Posts On: January 1, 2021 (Free from December 31, 2020 through December 31, 2021)


Barbara Black has come to the rescue again. We asked Australian quilter Wendy Williams to be our BOM designer and she created a fabulous design, Color My World, which features a Mariner’s Compass, Roads, Small Houses, Tall Buildings, Little House in the City, Skyscrapers and a few world landmark. But COVID is preventing her from being in studio with us… we asked Barbara Black to step in! Barbara guides us through the the decision making and quilting process to help you usher in a fantastic Block Of the Month for the new year.

Then Lilo Bowman, who has been one of the key behind the scenes people at TQS for 13 years, guides us through organizing our quilt spaces with the help of her brand new book, Love Your Creative Space: A Visual Guide to Creating an Inspiring & Organized Studio without Breaking the Bank.

I’m using fabric from my stash. I love the busy background fabric used in the picture. Where can I get and how much will I need? Looking forward to starting.
