Show 1313 - TQS Quilting Legend 2013

Featuring: Michael James

Posts On: December 23, 2013


It is with great pride and pleasure that we reveal our 2013 TQS Quilting Legend: quiltmaker, artist, and author, Michael James. Our first stop is the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, where Michael serves as Chair and Ardis James Professor of Textiles, Merchandising, and Fashion Design. UN-L is also home to the International Quilt Study Center and Museum, and we're treated to insights on the collections from Michael and Carolyn Ducey, Curator of Collections. Then Michael reveals how he transitioned from painter to textile artist, and the evolution of his work in the process. In addition, he shares a technique for enhancing a wholecloth quilt, and welcomes us to his home for a tour of his studio, a peek at his fabric collection, and a preview of the newest piece on his design wall. It's a fabulous finale to Series 1300!

Wow, what a wonderful show! His book was one of the first quilt books I ever bought. I still can look through it and remember the thrill of seeing quilts as ART !!

I can't get any of your 2013 shows to play. Where it says "Video Problems? Click Here" the only thing that happens is an enlarged screen. It still won't play.
