Alex, Ricky, and the TQS gang travel to the Omaha, NE, headquarters of AccuQuilt, where they connect with Linda Pumphrey, global sales manager (and self-described "Global Passionista") for a show loaded with fabulous projects and techniques. Linda leads off with Fractured Triangles, a fast-and-fun, strip-and-triangle-based quilt made using AccuQuilt's efficient and accurate cutting system. (A downloadable pdf for this project will be available on the TQS website.) Alex joins the fun with a lesson on "squiggles" (Sorry! You'll just need to watch!), and Ricky shows how to create a stunning quilt that combines charm squares with sparkling slivers of color. Finally, we couldn't leave our location without a tour of AccuQuilt's wonderful facility, hosted by director of marketing, Lynn Gibney.
Ricky demos a landscape technique using fabric confetti with a random scribble applique stitch.
