Show 2502: Latifah Saafir / Alex Anderson / Ricky Tims

Featuring: Latifah Saafir / Alex Anderson / Ricky Tims

Posts On: July 14, 2019

Trailer


Inspired by an antique 1940s sampler quilt, Alex and Ricky decide that it would make for a good challenge to start the show off by each of them recreating a new quilt based on the antique. After calculating the block measurements needed to remake the quilt, using the antique as an example, Ricky focuses on the line of rings that are positioned vertically. Then, following Ricky's presentation of the sampler, it’s Alex’s turn to share her interpretation of the antique quilt.

With the antique challenge complete, Alex and Ricky are introduced to Latifah Saafir, co-founder of the LA Modern Quilt Guild, pattern, tool and fabric designer, and chat with her about the early days of quilters wanting to share and find a community (off the web) where they could meet. Latifah ends the show by sharing a modern take on an old favorite, a fun technique for making individual 2 ½” block that, just like cross-stitch be combined with other blocks to build oversized ‘duckface’ characters (girl, boy, bride, groom, etc.).

Great info from Latifah but I hate that she had to be so rushed. It made me a little nervous to watch.
