Is there something about piano playing and quilting? Ricky and quilter Karen Stone are both amazing pianists as well as quilters! (They’re both Texans, too.) Karen’s background includes classical training and being surrounded by engineers, which might explain her incredible precision and love of complex work. Her latest technique is an adaptation of English Paper Piecing that doesn’t require hand piecing and includes curves! Karen demonstrates her fascinating style, which combines pinning, gluing and zigzag stitching. You will be amazed, and so was the studio audience, which had loads of questions for her.

Karen mentioned a quilt that inspired her, owned by quilt curator Julie Silber, so we went in search of Julie, and were rewarded with a tour of her antique quilt collection. You’ll love it!
