Quilt artist and teacher Sue Rasmussen began her sewing career as an 11-year-old on an 830 Bernina purchased for her by her dad. In this show, she joins the TQS gang on location at the Main Street Quilting Company in Bozeman, MT, to demonstrate her terrific techniques for adapting a traditional pictorial block or personal photograph for simplified piecing. Along the way, she shares loads of good info on fabric choices, construction, and even on using your iPad for creating templates! Then we visit the Coffee Creek Quilters, whose quilting classes for women incarcerated at the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville, OR, have dramatically changed the lives of the participants.
