How to Make a Nine Patch Strip Quilt with Ricky Tims | Quilt Embellishment with Shari Ruwe and Karen Ruwe
(Show 1408) Quilt artist, author, teacher, musician, and The Quilt Show co-host Ricky Tims takes center stage in this project- and technique-focused show. Inspired by an antique Amish quilt spotted in a book he received as a gift, Ricky has created Northern Lights, a fresh spin on a Nine-patch strip-style quilt. Discover how he quick-cuts and builds his nine-patch and triangular setting units, arranging the colors so they flow seamlessly from one to the next. Ricky also updates a traditional quilt with a contemporary "fiddlehead-fern-feather" quilting motif. Then Shari Ruwe and Karen Ruwe (no relation!) demonstrate examples of their collaborative work on the Nebraska State Raffle Quilt, including Shari's technique for making and embellishing pleated poppies, and Karen's tips for adding texture and pizzazz to a quilt with metallic thread.
