Show 1012 - Beyond Cotton: Working with Wool and Silk

Featuring: Sonya Lee Barrington

Posts On: June 4, 2012


It's a whole new world as fiber artist Sonya Lee Barrington shares the pleasures of using wool and silk as alternatives to cotton in your quilts and other sewing projects. After whetting your appetite with a number of her fabulous quilts, Sonya "gets down to business," explaining the unique properties of these two versatile fibers, offering a slew of tips for working with them, and showing a variety of inventive project possibilities. You'll love her clever purse made from the pocket of a man’s wool jacket! Want more? Ricky demonstrates an easy "four-patch-within-a-square" block that we'll pattern on the TQS site with a super-cool block challenge.
