This episode is so "meaty" that we had to break it into two parts! You'll want to be on hand for both as quiltmaker, teacher, author, fabric designer, musician, and our own TQS co-host Ricky Tims walks you through the complete process for making your own, unique Rhapsody-style quilt. Learn to create the design, make the templates, prepare the background, prepare and stitch the appliqués, and assemble the component parts into an original masterwork that you and your family will treasure. In addition to the step-by-step process, Ricky will have lots of fantastic quilts on hand to inspire you. It's almost like having him come to your sewing room for private lessons...and you can replay each step as many times as you wish!
