Show 1503 - Quilting without Limits: Using Unconventional Fabrics in Your Work

Featuring: Jerry Granata

Posts On: August 4, 2014


While in high school, award-winning quilt artist Jerry Granata made costumes for the National Marionette Company—an experience that taught him that no fabric is off limits, even for quilting. The trick is in knowing how to tame it, and in this show, Jerry reveals the huge variety of unusual fabrics available to quilters (think leather, lamé, fake fur, upholstery), where to find them, which to use when, how to prepare them, work with them, and even quilt them. We wrap with a tour of our day's location, The Witte Museum in San Antonio, TX, where Jerry—for 21 years a professional musician with the United States Navy—provides the soundtrack on his RED saxophone.
