Show 407 - Precision... and Pizzazz

Featuring: Elsie Campbell

Posts On: March 30, 2009

Do your Eight-Pointed Star blocks "tent" in the center? Is a button your solution for mismatched center seams? If so, this is definitely the show for you! Join master quiltmaker and author Elsie Campbell as she demonstrates her award-winning techniques and favorite tools for achieving pieced perfection with this problematic block. In addition, Alex shows how focusing on a simple traditional shape - in this case, the half-square triangle - can add pizzazz to your quilt. And you'll love this!! - Gregory Case, TQS' Photo Man, takes us on a nostalgic and fun-filled photo journey of TQS history.
