Show 1408 - Recreate the Northern Lights...Wherever You Call Home!

Featuring: Ricky Tims

Posts On: April 14, 2014


Quilt artist, author, teacher, musician, and TQS co-host Ricky Tims takes center stage in this project- and technique-focused episode, filmed on location at the AccuQuilt headquarters in Omaha, NE. Inspired by an antique Amish quilt spotted in a book he received as a gift, Ricky has created Northern Lights, a fresh spin on a Nine-patch strippie-style quilt. Discover how he quick-cuts and builds his nine-patch and triangular setting units, arranging the colors so they flow seamlessly from one to the next, and how to update a traditional top with a contemporary "fiddlehead-fern-feather" quilting motif. Then Shari Ruwe and Karen Ruwe (no relation!) demonstrate examples of their collaborative work on the Nebraska State Raffle Quilt, including Shari's technique for making and embellishing pleated poppies, and Karen's tips for adding texture and pizzazz to a quilt with metallic thread.
