Featuring: Teri Lucas / Martha Sielman

Posts On: September 20, 2020

Show Information

Teri Lucas (TerifiCreations)

Martha Sielman (SAQA)

From Chapter One:

Ricky sits down and talks with Teri Lucas. Teri has been a long time TQS member and promoter. She started with traditional quilting, but transitioned to machine quilting (on a domestic) in 2006. During the talk we ger a glimpse of her quilts.

From Chapter Two:

Teri shares a method for learning and practicing machine quilting designs using 12" quilt sandwiches. She then stitches out a 9-Patch block to use as an area where she can audition thread color, pattern variations, and other ideas before you move to an actual quilt.

From Chapter Three:

Using a color wheel, Teri shows how thread looks like in your hands versus what it will look like on a quilt depending on if you quilt it tightly or loosely. Some colors recede, while others come to the foreground. She also shares examples of various solid colored background fabrics stitched with the same colored thread.

From Chapter Four:

TQS visits the Houston International Quilt Festival for an interview with Martha Sielman about SAQA and the UPCYCLE Exhibit from the 2019 Houston Show.

I loved today's episode with Teri Lucas. The take away for me was to keep exploring and practicing and "color outside the lines in the coloring book." By experimenting and practicing we not only hone our skills we can invent new ways of creating with cloth and thread. Thanks Teri! I look forward to taking your work shop at Craft Napa in January.
I also loved the SAQA Up cycle exhibit! Fantastic. Thanks to the team of TQS for providing these inspirational episodes. I am so grateful for the opportunity to connect with such wonderful quilters and teachers despite the challenges of the pandemic.

Terrific show! I already have Teri's book. I bought it mainly because of the title. I do the same type of machine quilting. I really felt a connection with her. As for the masks, I know they are necessary, but I have a suggestion that would make hearing your talking much clearer. Brenda from AmongBrendasQui, has free video tutorials to make different style of masks. The most recent is a plastic shield. These can easily be made following her video or you can buy kits from her shop. I've made them for my family and asked my Dr. if wearing them without a cloth mask underneath was an acceptable practice. Her answer was ,"Yes".

I too, liked that more time was spent with your guest, so we were able to learn more than just a snippet.

Thanks again for a wonderful show.

Thank you for a MOST enjoyable show! I so wish either each show was 30 minutes longer or that we could watch more with each individual guest. I feel that today's show had such a wealth of information to share, especially for middle to advanced quilters who want to delve more deeply into things like modern quilting. With Teri, I'd have loved more information on the particular thread weights and performance. I know that cost is often the issue but with life now slowed down I'm finding myself wanting to savor the information instead of rushing after it to add more layers...ah well...regardle ss, you all have the BEST quilting shows and consistent quality presentations anywhere! Love you all...good job, Ricky!

Great episode. I think the plastic masks helped me hear better than the cloth ones, but it is still muffled to me. How about using a plastic curtain hung between the two people or plexiglass to keep the presenters safe?
