Victoria is back, after visiting in Show 1404: Jumpstart Your Creativity with 15 Minutes of Daily "Play". Alex and Ricky find out what she's been up to, including riding her Harley and writing a book. They also talk about Double Wedding Ring quilts. Victoria says that they are not difficult, but patience builders. Victoria loves to help quilters conquer this fear with successful piecing.
Victoria shows how easy it can be to cut free-form curves. Then it is on to sewing the two units together, with the result being a block that lays nice and flat. It’s all about hand placement, not pulling the fabric too much, and letting the feed dogs do the work.
