Posts On: May 10, 2010

Trailer


On the road again! This time, Alex and Ricky head to Texas to visit with quiltmaker, author, and pattern designer Cynthia England. In addition to treating us to a show of her work (and tales of the havoc wreaked on her studio by Hurricane Ike!), Cynthia explains how to break a complex design into manageable sections and demonstrates her award-winning paper-piecing method. She also discusses how a design wall plays an important part in her design process. In another segment, Ricky shows how to use bobbin work to add "pop" to an appliqué design and gives us a peek at his Dad's Lone Star quilt.
