Join us as Paula Doyle shows you how easy it is to create beautiful and complex designs using one large-scale print fabric. It’s a stack, pin, cut, and off-to-sew method that leaves zero waste. Don’t believe it’s possible? We didn’t either… until we saw it demonstrated. Then, Lea McComas unlocks the secret to making fabric color choices work nicely together. This fast and simple method saves you hours of frustration before you make that first cut into your fabric.

Paula sits down with Alex and Ricky and talks about creating simple blocks that look complex by letting the fabric do the work. She also talks about working with fabric designer Amelia Caruso.
Paula also shares photos from the Magna Carta Quilt project that she was asked to work on. It was a double-sided 4-panel multi-artist quilt project that celebrated the 800-year anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta.
Paula shows you how to use up those leftover scraps by creating new and exciting blocks. This means you have absolutely no waste of fabric and more than one project to show for it. She builds several blocks using scraps from a border print.
Alex and Ricky look at Lea McComas' most recent work. Lea then shares a fun and easy technique using a color wheel, buttons, and an orphan silk quilt block to help you select fabric colors for a project that work and play well together to create more harmonious results.
Paula shares more about the Magna Carta quilt project. Having outgrown her home studio, Paula decided it was time to set up in a custom she-shed in the back yard. With three glass sides, she is able to view the Thames river from her studio. She shares photos.
