Where do we begin? Award-winning quilt artist? Best-selling author? World-traveled teacher? NQA-certified judge? Quilting icon Judy Mathieson does it all. And in this episode, she demos some of the techniques that she is famous for, including her precision paper-piecing method - no paper to remove! - and how she builds her characteristic star circles, segment by segment. If that's not enough, Judy also offers valuable pointers on what judges look for in a quilt when judging a quilt show. This not-to-be-missed episode was shot on location at the beautiful Wente Winery in Northern California, and also features a brief winery tour, a lovely redwork pattern featuring grapes, vines, and leaves, and Ricky singing opera... in a cave!
Judy teaches how she gets perfect points for her Mariner's Compass quilts using her signature techniques.
