There's a ton to learn in this show! For starters, with the help of quilter and product designer Renae Haddadin (via WebTV), Alex and Ricky play with the Mariner's Compass and other circular designs using Renae's Amazing Ray Tool. Next, we catch up with folk artist, teacher, and lecturer Rachel D.K. Clark, who is especially well known for her quirky and colorful wearable art. After giving us a taste of her work, Rachel demonstrates a variety of her favorite piecing techniques, all of which can be used in garments or quilts. Keep a pencil and notepad handy!
