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 applique design and gives us a peek at his Dad's Lone Star quilt.
