It’s amazing what happens over the course of 200+ TQS episodes! Designer and teacher Cindy Needham was a guest on Show 202 and she returns to show us how her work has developed. She reviews her past quilts, which incorporate and highlight the handwork of antique linens, and then she shares her most recent projects. She also creates stencils, and demonstrates how they can help you fill whatever design space you need. She offers tips for turning simple quilting designs into stunning works of art. Lastly, Cindy gives expert advice on selecting threads to match antique linens. Traveling to warmer climates, TQS visits with whimsical quilter Bari Ackerman in her Scottsdale, AZ studio. Bari is a fabric designer, author, and designer of home décor wall stencils. She will demonstrate her creation of fabric collages.
