Alex and Ricky welcomed Betty Busby and Cyndi McChesney to Ricky's studio in La Veta, CO.

After a very successful career in ceramics, Betty Busby transitioned to exploring and manipulating unusual non-quilting fibers that feature subjects from the natural world. Using hand painted silk, a soldering iron and other out-of-the-norm tools, Betty shares how to make translucent and unbelievably delicate elements for her larger than life quilts.

Cyndi McChesney is back to unravel the mysteries of drafting a traditional antique quilt block based on a grid system.

Star Members can watch Betty and Cyndi in Show 2202: Working with Unusual Materials and Decoding an Antique Block when it debuts Sunday, January 14, 2018.
