Color and Applique Techniques with Becky Goldsmith | How to Make a Baby Quilt
(Show 1704) Becky Goldsmith is one of the true Queens of Appliqué and is also a Master of Color. Becky shares great information about the use of color and its various elements: how white can freshen the look of a project; how to identify and use clear colors vs. gray ones; and how to combine the two into one quilt. She shares some of her many quilt creations, including her recent Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge, in which she used every unsightly piece her blog readers sent to her. Still near and dear to her heart, Becky shares her secrets for making wonderful appliqué letters, and getting around tricky turned corners. She even shows how to appliqué your signature. Lastly, she shares an amazing technique for binding quilts, which may be your biggest challenge to duplicate! Alex then demonstrates a super fast, three-hour baby quilt top, made with a center panel and a border of flying geese, and she shares her speedy and accurate technique.
