Show 106 - A Touch of Ireland

Featuring: Denise Labadie

Posts On: July 2, 2007

Denise Labadie, an award-winning quilt maker, uses her profound love of the Irish landscape and ancient megalithic stones as a theme that is central to her quilting. To best express the moods and textures inherent in her complex landscapes, Denise uses a wide variety of colors, fabrics, and threads. In today's show, Denise demonstrates how she achieves the effect of realistic looking "fabric stones", we get a visit from Cheryl Uribe, The Quilt Show's Gizmo Girl, and a piano performance of Danny Boy by Ricky.
