Take a look behind the scenes as TQS welcomes award-winning quilt artist, Teri Cherne. As an artist, Teri didn’t let a little thing like two bouts of cancer keep her from creating. Known for her incredibly detailed and precise work, she shares how she drafts an entire quilt before needle ever hits thread. But that’s not all, she loves adding interesting details in her binding that she calls 'the frame for your picture.' You won't believe the results.

Then Alex shares a contemporary rendition of an antique Shoo-Fly quilt as a way to honor and treasure those who stitched before.

It was filmed at the Clarke Memorial Museum in Eureka, California, which contains the area's premier collection of far California North Coast regional and cultural history, with significant focus on the 19th Century Victorian era. There were some very interesting items on display during filming, and we don't mean Alex and Ricky!

Melissa Sobotka is a relative newcomer on the quilt scene, but this multiple award-winning quilter has taken the quilt world by storm with her photo realistic style. Using a photograph as inspiration, Melissa, like a master painter, transforms a blank fabric base using hundreds of tiny pieces of batiks. Depth is created with inks and other medium until the resulting quilt emerges in all of its glory. Melissa gives tips for selecting fabrics to achieve realism and details how tools from the art world can add life to your fabric image.
 
Also in this show, Alex shares the ins and outs of pinning and why the pins you select can make a real difference in your piecing results.
