We return to Texas to rendezvous with quilt artist, author, and designer Cynthia England, who gives us a glimpse of what she's been up to since her last TQS appearance (Show 610). Over the years, Cynthia has achieved a well-deserved reputation as an award-winning pictorial art quilter who—amazingly—builds her design with piecing, not appliqué. Here she unveils the tools and techniques she uses for her "forgiving" methods, and demonstrates a clever technique for attaching a sleeve to a small quilt or wallhanging that requires no hand sewing. Then we head off to visit fiber artist, writer, and designer Wendy Mamattah, originally from Ghana, who shares her Africa-inspired silhouette and symbols quilts, as well as her charming one-of-a-kind pin cushions.
Cynthia England shares new ideas, techniques and quilts she is currently working - traditional quilts with picture piecing.
