TQS gets another visit from "Down Under" as New Zealand quilter Sheila Christensen stops by. On this show, Sheila offers up fun and exciting ways to utilize the versatility of the triangle with her triangle patchwork technique. From there, Sheila uses these techniques to show how to create a Star Tip block involving triangles in a row by row assembly method.
We end the show with a fashion free-for-all as Tami Pfeil visits to demonstrate all the different types of apparel and accessories you can make out of unusual fabric, culminating in an audience member fashion show.
Alex and Ricky are introducted to New Zealand quilter Sheila Christensen. Originally from England, Sheila talks about the large and active quilting scene present in New Zealand and how she moved to the country after seeing a coffee table book about it. Shelia shares her quilts with Alex and Ricky, and how she is primarily known for mystery quilts, along with her love of taking classes and being inspired to learn new techniques.
Sheila then offers up how to make a Star Tip block by fussy cutting a hexagon that is then pieced into a triangle in a row by row assembly method.
Tami Pfeil stops by at the end of the show to suggest different ways of working with unsual fabric. She shares lots of "out of the box" options for making apparel, such as ponchos, jackets, and dresses, and gift ideas like pillows, tote bags, and fabric buckets. We end with a fashion show where members of the audience model these various garments and accessories.
