Featuring: Katie Fowler

Posts On: April 22, 2018


Ricky kicks off the show with tips for assembling contemporary a baby bunting quilt inspired by an antique quilt. The large 16” blocks can then be combined in using a variety of settings to make a number of very striking quilts.
Quilt artist and teacher Katie Fowler returns to share the fun of coloring pre-printed mandala designs built with quilt blocks on fabric. It takes the joy of the coloring book to a whole new level. Now your colored designs can be used just like any other fabric in your stash!
From selecting hues that play well together to tips for coloring, achieving the best results and setting the fabric, it’s fun on a grand scale. Once the Mandala has been completed it’s on to fast finishes and creative ways to incorporate your finished designs into items other than quilts.

Katie has fallen in love with the Mandala designs and taken that love of coloring that so many find enjoyable to a whole new level…coloring on fabric. She also discusses how as an artist, it is so important to be true to yourself and to embrace who you are.

Then it’s on to the fun of using pre-printed Mandala color fabric sheets.

Katie shares a program for creating your own Mandala designs. Don’t like to bind your work? Katie has three fast finishing techniques that you will just love. Options for what you can do with a finished colored Mandala coloring sheet are also shared.

loved the show and purchased the Scope Works app but are there any references available to learn how to use it, i.e. adding your own foto or line drawing?

About 35 years ago my mentor, Jean Ray Laury (an amazing quilter, teacher, and artist), told me there were two types of artists, a project artist: one who completes a project before going on to the next one, and a process artist: one who is most interested in the process of making something. Katie is my kind of artist. It's all about the process. WONDERFUL SHOW!

In regards to using the the Inktense pencils...are the colors later “set” because it dried or does one have to heat set the colors with an iron. Concerns about colors bleeding....

There is info about the app for Mac, but even though she mentions there is one for PC there isn't any mention or information on what that one is and how to get it.
I don't have a Mac, and haven't been able to find the one for the PC doing a web search. (other than one a great deal more expensive)

Can you please tell those of us who don't use a Mac what the PC one is?

We apologize for the delay. The download for Ricky's pattern should now be available.

Loved this show! So inspired to color and turn the pieces into a quilt. Love the idea of using wool as a background!
I would also like to be able to download Ricky’s baby bunting pattern. Hope it is loaded on this site soon!

Katie always inspires me. I got the ScopeWorks app for my Mac and I have already had so much fun with it. Now I need to print some designs on fabric and PLAY-because I HAVE permission.

Thank you, Katie (and TQS). This was another inspirational show. Now I need to run to my sewing room and Twiddle dee and Twiddle done ♥️

Click here for downloadable pattern.

For Ricky’s baby bunting paper piecing pattern does not appear to be working. Please advise on where it can be downloaded elsewhere on your site. Thank you.

The show was great! Thanks!!

I don't know if you are looking for technical feedback, but I noticed that this video was produced with Vimeo and the last several were YouTube. I don't know what other people's experiences are, but for me the Vimeo videos are really annoying because they constantly stop to load. The YouTube videos worked perfectly for me and made the shows much more comfortable to watch. If you can do more shows with YouTube, that would be great!!
