In Show 2109, Michele Sanandajian wants to push the boundaries of what constitutes a quilt. Her collage work and her use of out-of-the-ordinary mediums makes her quilts stand out. Bits of dryer sheets, netting for produce, candy wrappers, and scraps of leather make their way onto a surface painted design in a layer-by-layer effect using her Innova longarm. Finishing off the work is her hand spun yarn that becomes the edge finish of the quilt.

Then, TQS catches up with textile artist, teacher, and “Dean of Corrections of the Chicago School of Fusing," Laura Wasilowski, in Sisters, OR, to see her “Pretty Planet” series and how she binds these unusually shaped quilts.

Star Members can watch Michele and Laura in Show 2109: Inventive Products & Binding Unusually Shaped Quilts, when it debuts Sunday, October 22, 2017.
