TQS is on the road and at the studio of Jane Dunnewold in San Antoinio, TX, where they filmed Episode 1410: You Can Have It All: Two Modern-Day Quilters Mix Old and New. Alex and Ricky are joined by self-described "scrapaholic" Bonnie Hunter, who made her first quilt using her grandmother's cardboard templates.
In this show, Bonnie shares her quilter-friendly system for cutting and sorting scraps, her technique for making quick 2"-finished half-square-triangle units from strips, and her ingenious "Leaders and Enders" technique, which makes thrifty use of leftovers and thread.
In addition, Bonnie shows how she builds a quilt using fabric "strings" and phonebook-page foundations, and how to play with the finished blocks.
We end with a field trip to meet Nebraska quiltmaker, author, teacher, and quilt judge Shelly Burge, who currently incorporates copper crimping in her quilts - while curating her collection of over 300 (!) vintage sewing machines.
