Show 505 - Fabric of Life Challenge

Featuring: Challenge Show

Posts On: August 31, 2009

TQS members joined with Carol Schillios and Fabric of Life to create quilts from fabric made by women in Mali. The challenge extended our design capabilities and increased our awareness and sensitivity for women around the world. Discover who won and see the designs created by Ricky, Alex, and some surprise participants. As an added bonus, Ricky and .?. show how their designs were created. You will then see how to paper piece a Compass design. This is a show brimming with design, color, and heart.
