Show 1309 - Enter the 3rd Dimension with Quilted Sculpture

Featuring: Susan Else

Posts On: October 28, 2013


In this episode, you'll meet "quilt sculptor" and teacher Susan Else, who made the leap from "flat quilts" to one-of-a-kind, three-dimensional quilted works and has never looked back. After showing a selection of her incredible quilted sculptures, Susan demonstrates how she uses felt, fabric-wrapped floral wire, and couching to create dimensional leaves, helps Alex construct a 3-D diorama, and shares some excellent tips for adapting your cutting tools to accommodate physical limitations. In addition, Alex demos the fast-and-fun, paper-pieced fan block that she used in her colorful quilt Hot Flash. Don't miss it!
