We're thrilled to kick off our 1400 series with a visit from quilt designer and award-winning quilter Janet Stone. Ever since childhood, Janet has been intrigued by typography, and her wonderfully original designs—including A-Z for Ewe and Me!, our 2014 TQS Block of the Month quilt—clearly demonstrate this lifelong passion for all things "alphabet." In this show, Janet shares a "flock" of tips for stitching accurate and easy flying-geese and half-square-triangle units, as well as some terrific ideas for creating machine-appliquéd letters . . . all useful techniques for making your own version of the BOM quilt. Also, Ricky demonstrates how to spice up your bindings with a scalloped detail.
