Show 1409 - Bringing In the Great Outdoors: Quilts Inspired by Our National Parks

Featuring: Linda Beach

Posts On: April 28, 2014


Can you imagine being named artist-in-residence at several prominent US National Parks, including Denali (Alaska), Acadia (Maine), and Mesa Verde (Colorado)? That's the enviable experience of Colorado-based fiber artist Linda Beach! In this show, Linda visits the TQS gang to show some of her amazing, nature-inspired, machine-pieced works, and to share some of the fabric-selecting and construction techniques she uses to create them, a process she compares to assembling a giant quilter’s jigsaw puzzle. In addition, Ricky shows how a traditional Sailboat block can be an inspirational springboard for a fun and funky new design. "Sail" in, settle down, and enjoy!
