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!
From Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, CA, Alex and Ricky give lessons from Mother Nature's bountiful Color. Then, Laura Nownes joins Alex and demystifies diamonds and Y-seams. First she gives tips on fabric selection, then cutting, and pressing.
Laura continues teaching her diamond and Y-seam techniques.
Laura shares her diverse body of work with us.
