Show 1109 - Fabulous Fabric Landscapes... By Accident!

Featuring: Karen Eckmeier

Posts On: October 22, 2012


We return to the home of Betsy and Richard Ehrenberg in Santa Fe to welcome self-described "late bloomer" –AKA fiber artist, teacher, and author—Karen Eckmeier, who demonstrates how she uses overlapping and topstitched fabric strips to create her delightful "accidental landscape" quilts. In addition, Karen shares ideas for adapting her versatile technique for use on garments, and Lilo and Elena model some of Karen's wearable creations. (You'll need to watch to discover why you'll always find a "lucky lizard" stitched into Karen's show quilts.) The episode concludes with a tour of the Ehrenberg home, Casa de Vidrio (House of Glass), which houses the couple's amazing collection of contemporary art glass.
