For this episode, we travel to Santa Fe, NM (the second largest art market outside of New York City!) to catch up with Texas quilter and teacher Tommy Romano, who shares his top ten tips—or "ten commandments"—for precision piecing. Preparation, appropriate tools and their maintenance, technique… even the proper state of mind—Tommy puts his precise approach to work while demonstrating a new twist on the traditional Nine Patch block. You'll learn a bunch and love the results! The episode comes to an "artful" conclusion as Peter Stoessel, executive director of our day's location, the beautiful Blue Rain Gallery, takes us on a tour of the site, which features regional and non-regional art by top Native American artists.
