After needlepointing an entire couch, it's no wonder that fiber artist and author Carol Ann Waugh decided to take up another form of needlework! Lucky for us, she taught herself to quilt. In this episode, she shows her “stupendously stitched” and quilted works and then demonstrates the "stupendous stitching" techniques that she uses to create her uniquely textured pieces. She also shares a nifty edge-finishing technique, offers clever suggestions for using up leftover bits of your work, and discusses what it's like to create commissioned pieces for private and corporate collectors. Last stop: an on-site visit with quilt artist Judith Trager of Boulder, CO.
