Becky Goldsmith (who appeared in Episode 611) is one of the true "Queens of Appliqué," but she is also a "Master of Color."  In this episode she shares great information about the use of color and its various elements:  how white can freshen the look of a project; how to identify and use clear colors vs. gray ones; and how to combine the two into one quilt.  She shares some of her many quilt creations, including her recent "Ugly Fabric Challenge," in which she used every unsightly piece her blog readers sent to her.  Still near and dear to her heart, Becky shares her secrets for making wonderful appliqué letters, and getting around tricky turned corners.  She even shows how to appliqué your signature.  Lastly, she shares an amazing technique for binding quilts, which may be your biggest challenge to duplicate!  Alex then demonstrates a super fast, three-hour baby quilt top, made with a center panel and a border of flying geese, and she shares her speedy and accurate technique.  

Star Members can watch Becky in Show 1704 - Color Challenges and a Quickie Quilt when it debuts on August 17, 2015.

Just back from Road to CA and loved the winning quilt. It looks like someone took a photo of it. Outstanding. I entered a purse in the challenge and had fun doing it. Mine was on display...my first entry and it was fun.
