Show 1603 - Quilters and Friends for Life

Featuring: Sharon Schamber / Tom Russell

Posts On: February 2, 2015


It is with bittersweet feelings that we share this episode.  We were ecstatic to welcome world-class artist and quilter Sharon Schamber to the Quilt Show.  Sharon's good friend and fellow quilter Tom Russell is also a part of this episode, and we are grateful that we had a chance to talk to him before his passing.  His contributions to the world of quilting are tremendous, and he will be sorely missed.  We hope you will watch the show with a glad heart, knowing that you also are privileged to share these moments with him.

Sharon presents her secrets about no-fuss appliqué, pin-free binding, and mitering corners. There’s even a free pattern for an iron cover used for delicate fabrics.  She shares many tips, tricks and techniques, including some that are being revealed for the first time anywhere. A free download of the pattern is available on her website.

Sharon began her fabric career designing high-end clothing, dance costumes and pageantry wear. Many of her quilt ideas were woven from these initial threads. Because she uses so many delicate specialty fabrics, Sharon invented a sleeve for her iron, which she uses to protect fabrics from the heat.

Tom offers his color theory ideas, which he manifests with embroidery threads and simple stitches. We hope you will cherish his lessons as much as we do.

I loved this show, but it also makes me sad. In seeing this show Tom Russell inspired me to see quilts in the most unusual places. I will be remembering these two friends forever. Thanks for the opportunity of learning about them.
