Show 2003 - Vintage Charm Using Silk and Machine Threadwork

Featuring: Lynda Faires

Posts On: January 29, 2017


Join Lynda Faires as she takes Crazy Quilting to a whole new level with beautiful fabrics and machine stitches. Using Dupioni silk, Lynda shares her method for avoiding awkward corners or Y-seams when creating a crazy patchwork block. The magic happens when luscious threads, ric-rac, and ribbons are combined along with machine stitches to create interest and depth. Lynda says the results are simply stunning and achievable by any quilter.

Also in this show, Alex takes the guesswork out of selecting fabrics by using a color wheel tool.

From Chapter One:

Alex shares tips for using a color wheel when trying to select fabrics for your quilt projects. Using examples of Monochromatic, Triad, and Analogous color schemes, she takes the mystery out of what colors play well together.

From Chapter Two:

After a career as a professor in the field of Spectroscopy, Lynda Faires returned to her love of quilting in 1990. She learned to sew from her mother and has always found it to be an enjoyable, fun, and great way to express in life. Lynda loves including computerized stitches in her work as it harkens back to the scientific and exacting work of her former career. She also loves using silk as the base fabric, due to its luscious radiance. We look at her quilts.

From Chapter Three:

Lynda shares her method for avoiding awkward corners or Y-seams when creating a crazy patchwork block.

From Chapter Four:

Once your block has been created, it's time to add embellishment with a combination of machine stitches and beading.

Hi Alex,
I shut down my computer, restarted and relogged in. I get a box above the trailer that says, Here's How to Get Instant Access. The only show I can watch is #2001. I tried a completely different computer with the same results. I miss my quilt shows!!nn :sad:

I enjoyed the show very much and identify with the guest. I love to play with color and explore the look of different decorative stitches on my machines. Crazy quilting is my favorite style and have taught it on occasion...But it does help if you are at least crazy about something.
