Show 1307 - Traditional, Artsy, or Otherwise: Make Your Scrap Quilts Sing!

Featuring: Alex Anderson

Posts On: September 23, 2013


It's a fabric lover's dream as co-host Alex Anderson "anchors" aboard the USS Yorktown with a boatload of inspiration and tips for creating sensational and successful scrap quilts. From building a healthy stash, to choosing a scrap-worthy block, to establishing and implementing a viable "plan" — Alex touches all the bases. (Our self-described "queen of pinning" even demonstrates a quick-and-easy, no-pin technique for piecing the Bowtie block.) Then join us for an enlightening field piece on how a group of Egyptian artisans, known as The Tentmakers of Cairo, are adapting their traditional talents to the world of quilting.
