Ricky sat down with quilter, teacher, and author Jo Avery at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019. They talk about her classes, her new book, and her amazing retreats which take place in Edinburgh and the rest of the UK.

Cape Jasmine by Masako Kumagawa features four large Cape Jasmine wreaths. We can't even begin to count how many hand-stitched leaves and petals there are in each wreath. Then she caps it off by creating four smaller wreaths and a floral border. We think there might be more petals than stitches in this beautiful hand-crafted masterpiece.

Cape Jasmine was featured in the Merit Quilting Hand exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.

For the first time, quilts are being seen in Times Square! 

The City Quilter arranged with Panasonic to provide free time on its 28 ft X 38 ft Astrovision screen, high above Times Square, to promote their "MADE IN NEW YORK: City Quilting" Exhibition, taking place just a few blocks away at the Williams Club. The 15 second spot runs every 7 1/2 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through the end of the exhibition on November 14.

We all know that Ricky loves ravens, and this beauty by Debra Crine would certainly make him smile. Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, it's so real looking you can almost hear the whisper of "Nevermore".

"Nevermore" won an Honorable Mention in the Painted Surface category at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.

Barbara used a striped fabric to create the large center star for Lone Star Garden. The appliqué designs were adapted from Pat Campbell's Jacobean Appliqué designs. The outer border is soft-edge pieced with a Jinny Beyer border stripe fabric. Barbara bought 15 yards of the border stripe over several trips to the store to be sure she had enough.
