How to Do Thread Painting, Roving, and Needle Punch with Charlotte Hickman
(Show 1805) Charlotte Hickman is a storyteller and quilter, with a long career in school administration, and a creative background in knitting, spinning and playing the organ. She took up quilting after retirement and has been going nonstop ever since. Her charming personality is always present as she shares stories about her life and her work. Charlotte incorporates her roving yarns (fuzzy-textured wool fibers) into many of her quilts, and she demonstrates how she creates tree trunks using the needle punch attachment on her BERNINA. She also shares her method for thread painting leaves, which she creates in units, using a wooden hoop and a water-soluble stabilizer. Ricky has tips for constructing a Snowball block, which is used in his quilt, Sir Lancelot, the second in his Arthurian Legend Quilt Series. His method produces a bonus block to be utilized elsewhere.
