Alex and Ricky head to the home and studio of art quilter, teacher, author, Silver Star Award winner, founder of the renowned Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA), and 2010 TQS Quilting Legend, YVONNE PORCELLA. Yvonne shares her quilting history, and gives an "up-close and personal" look at some of her amazing and artful quilts and wearables. Then she puts on her "teacher" hat to show how she creates one of her Fantasy Faces and to demonstrate techniques for "taming" various types of silk fabrics. It's a show packed with inspiration, instruction, and heart...a fitting "grand finale" for the 700 series.
