Since graduating from FIT, Michelle Jackson has made a successful transition from lingerie designer to wearable art, and ultimately to art quilts. In this episode, the 2010 Niche Award-winning fiber artist demonstrates the relationship - and difference - between color and value, and the important part value plays in determining what one sees when viewing a quilt. In addition, Alex shows how cutting and constructing the Drunkard's Path block can be a snap with the help of the AccuQuilt GO! fabric cutter and dies. All this, show and tell, and a great location - the home of Bob and Barbara Normoyle in Monument, CO - too.
