Show 2709: Tara Faughnan / Diana McClun

Featuring: Tara Faughnan / Diana McClun

Posts On: October 18, 2020

Trailer


Tara Faughnan joins Alex to discuss her ideas about color theory and value in quilts. They talk about how some colors “sing”, others don’t, and how value can change the energy level of a quilt. She also supplies information about her “Color Collective”. Then, Tara demonstrates her style of free-form hand quilting that she does without a hoop. She considers hand quilting an embellishment. She also shows Alex her stitching chart that she created to keep track of which type of needle works the best with different types of thread.

We end the show with a visit to Diana McClun’s house and studio. Diana is a quilting pioneer and author along with Laura Nownes of Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!!, now in its 3rd edition.

What a great episode. Tara’s segment was serendipitous for me because I’m currently exploring the impact of color in my quilts and all types of hand quilting. And, to see another lefty quilting just made me smile (under my mask). :-)
