Do you find that the mathematics of quilting make you run screaming from the room? Fear no more! Designer, teacher and lecturer Lynn Wilder has found a way to make “Patchwork Math” palatable for all of us. While visiting at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, Lynn explains her system for breaking down quilt designs into smaller components, making complex projects much more manageable and accessible. With a combination of grid units and various tools, she makes the daunting become doable. She also discusses her unique methods for auditioning fabrics and for creating order – with a pasta dryer! You’ll also meet Aussies Helen Stubbings and Tracey Browning, who share a smart and cool method for making iron-on hexagons. Bring it on!

Episode 1604: Taking the Fear Out of Math for Quilters debuts on February 16, 2015.
