Show 710 - Conquering the Y-seam Tumble

Featuring: Laura Nownes

Posts On: November 8, 2010


Beloved quilt teacher, author, and designer Laura Nownes comes to Alex's hometown, to show a selection of her charming quilts AND to share her simple, two-pin technique for stitching a Y-seam, a must for constructing the Tumbling Blocks block. Laura also talks about her long-time collaboration with quilter and friend, Diana McClun, including the story behind their best-selling, quilt-library staple, Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!! As an added bonus, Alex and Ricky draw upon the Alden Lane Nursery location to inspire you with tips on color and composition for quilts. Don't miss it!
