After viewing this episode, you'll understand why quilter and teacher Ronda Beyer took the Best of Show award at the 2010 AQS Show and Contest in Knoxville with her friend, Gail Stepanek, for their spectacular quilt, Star Berries. Ronda is an expert on her longarm quilting machine, and she loves to put her own unique spin on traditional designs. In this episode, she demonstrates ideas that you can adapt for hand quilting as well: how to create cross-hatched and double cross-hatched motifs and how to customize premade quilting stencils to fit your needs. She also shares a few of her beautiful quilts, including the aforementioned show-stopper. Then, if you're thinking of entering a show, Photo Man Gregory Case offers suggestions for improving the quality of those required photos.
