Show 809 - Paper-Pieced Perfection

Featuring: Alex Anderson

Posts On: April 25, 2011


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. 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 gives her 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!
