Show 1612 - Quilting the Wild West

Featuring: Carol Ann Sinnreich / Cristy Fincher

Posts On: June 8, 2015


Textile Artist Carol Ann Sinnreich shares her love of the West, and talks about the extensive research she conducts prior to creating her quilts.  Carol has developed an appliqué technique for perfecting tricky intersections with multiple pieces of fabric.  She also discusses her approach to commission work, from which offers to choose, how to discuss and price a project, to proper documentation before and after making the piece.  Next, if dyeing your own fabric has seemed daunting and expensive, this is the episode for you!  Ricky shows Alex an approach that needs only basic tools and simple methods.  He folds and dyes fabrics, creating beautiful striped designs.   Last but not least, Cristy Fincher has a new trick to teach – paper piecing without paper!  Who knew??
