Featuring: Sarah Ann Smith

Posts On: October 6, 2019 (Coming Soon)

Ricky begins the show with a demonstration sharing two techniques for sewing a perfect mitered border corner, one involving pressing a crease and the other using a ruler. He follows this up by offering tips for avoiding puffy or tapered borders and how you can use this same process to create a multiple border mitered corner

Sarah Ann Smith, a TQS member from the very start, then shares her story of discovering quilting while working in Bolivia, teaching herself using Quilter’s Newsletter magazines. Sarah Ann shows us how we can achieve realistic results for recreating photographs using a variety of techniques that can be done individually or layered in a collage effect. Sarah Ann ends the show by teaching how threadwork and the type of thread you use can blend, enhance or accentuate an area of your work.
