Show 1511 - Make it Marvelous with Museum-Quality Appliqué

Featuring: Laura Fraga

Posts On: November 24, 2014


Quilter, lecturer, teacher, and “Dear Jane” aficionado Laura Fraga is passionate about hand appliqué, and in this info-packed episode she shares some of her favorite tools, techniques, and tips for making templates, achieving the perfect invisible stitch, coping with tricky points, and creating flawless circles. (She also recently took up skateboarding, and manages to get Ricky “on the board.” You won’t want to miss this!) We finish by chatting with museum director Christine Jeffers, who gives us a tour of our taping location, the San Jose Museum of Quilt and Textiles, the first of its kind in the US to focus on quilts and textiles.
