It's time for quilter, teacher, Silver Star Award winner, author, and TQS co-host Alex Anderson to take the floor in an on-location episode that's all about the fine art of paper piecing. In this "from start to finish" lesson, Alex introduces the tools you'll need to do the job, and then-using the New York Beauty block-she covers choosing fabrics, fabric placement, the basics of paper piecing...even how to paper piece curves and thoughts about quilting designs. As an added bonus, she takes you on a tour of host (and quilter) Cynthia Elliott's sewing room, and learns about making pizza in Cynthia's on-site wood-fired oven. Quilting and food? Perfect!
Alex and Ricky are on location in Sacramento, California, USA, the home of Granger and Cynthia Elliott
