Trailer


Ricky starts the show with a tutorial on his "Dancing Squares" quilt. It is a fun variation on Seminole piecing featuring dancing squares.

Alex and Ricky greet Teresa Coates of Shannon Fabrics. Teresa loves working with challenging and unusual fabrics. She has always sewn, and made her first quilt in 1992 when she was pregnant with her son. It wasn’t until 2000 that she started working with quilts in earnest. She approached Shannon Fabrics as she was up for working with their wide and diverse range of unusual fabrics. Currently she is their Events/Education coordinator, but, she still loves designing her own quilts as well. Teresa shares some of her quilts.

Teresa shares tips for working with Shannon or Minky type fabrics. Don't be intimitated by these fabrics. Teresa says that once you know the tricks, you will love them. Once you learn the tips, it’s on to finishing a cuddle blanket by attaching a fast and easy binding. The entire quilt can be made as a gift in about three hours. Want to work on a smaller project? Teresa shares a fun pillow idea that is sure to be a hit for any recipient.

In the After Set, Teresa talks about moving her family to Vietnam in 2006. The kids were 9 and 14. Moving to another country taught her to take risks and that she could tackle anything. She shares photos from Vietnam.

this is frustrating. Trying to watch the video and all I get is the trailer.

OMG Ricky explained the Dancing Squares quilt so well even though it looked so complicated. It made me really glad he is a TQS host to share his talents. Such a magical, fun quilt especially in his hand dyes!

Teresa is so inspiring as well!! I'm wondering why I've been afraid of these fabrics. This show is fabulous. Thank you for bringing these people to us :D
