How to Paint Fabric with Mickey Lawler | How to Do a Binding with Gwen Marston
(Show 1305) Quilt artist Mickey Lawler began painting sky fabrics in the mid-80s when she couldn’t find the pieces she wanted for her original quilted landscapes. Before long, her company Skydyes was born…and the rest is history! Mickey talks about her newest work and engages Ricky in a fun, hands-on fabric-painting exercise complete with tips. She then demos how to build a landscape design by combining painted fabric with touches of piecing or appliqué. Mickey also shares her practical method for designing a quilting plan that enhances the finished quilt top. As an added bonus, we track down the legendary and "Liberated" Gwen Marston on the road in Sisters, OR, where she shares her method for creating "skinny finishes" and Amish-style bindings.
