Show 709 - Quilting with Personality

Featuring: Marcia Stein

Posts On: October 25, 2010


Learn to "plant your fabric stash with interest" as Alex and Ricky use colorful window boxes to demonstrate the concept of visual texture, and how mixing the patterns and print scale in the fabrics you choose can add interest and personality to your quilts. Then, TQS welcomes quilt artist Marcia Stein, who talks about developing a personal style, and demonstrates how she builds a quilt based on a photograph. Lots of juicy details here, including "the skinny" on needles, thread weight and color, stitch length, and Marcia's virtually invisible, super-tiny zigzag, machine-applique technique.
