This was best show ever. I got my thread and fantastix applicators. Had paints what fun, I did a fish, love the effect it gives. Working a book for great grandson with turtles and tractors. Thanks for opening our world to new techniques.

I just watched this show. Kim Lacy is a great teacher and her quilts, especially the Antelope Canyon Quilt, are stunning. Her use of chizimi thread and the effects it produces are fascinating. I hope that you have her back some time to demonstrate whatever are her latest themes and techniques. I have a feeling the innovation will just continue.

You can use chizimi and mosaic painting on just about any kind of fabric.

Another great show. Having painted and trapunto on almost every art piece I do, I can’t wait to try this technique. This looks like a great way to cover up and use up ugly fabric you have in your stash. By the time you paint it and quilt it, it is almost unrecognizable or it could be. Can’t wait to experiment.

Beautiful quilts by Kim. Can you use this technique on batiks or quilting cottons, or is silk necessary?
