Show 801 - "Painting" with Fabric: Free-Style Quilts

Featuring: Susan Carlson

Posts On: January 3, 2011


Series 8 gets off to a free-wheeling start as fabric artist, designer, author, and teacher Susan Carlson visits the set with the lowdown on how she creates her "serendipitous" collage-like quilts. Get inside her design process, pick up some tips on using your fabric scraps as "paint," explore the potential of interpreting the same design in three different colorways, and learn a cool technique for applying binding. All this, plus Ricky shows you how to splice (and spice) your fabric by inserting a "lifeline" sliver.
