C'mon along as Quilting Adventure Guide (aka quiltmaker, designer, author, teacher, and surfer Rob Appell) "makes a splash" in our TQS studio. First he shows Ricky his Sewmando Vest, designed to keep a whole host of quilting tools within easy reach. Then the focus shifts to one of Rob's most cherished quilting endeavors - the Endangered Species Quilt Project - in which he has teamed with Michael Miller fabrics to build awareness of our planet and her endangered species through quilting. Rob displays some of these special quilts, demonstrates how to create a clever clownfish design, and discusses his quilting process, including some great trouble-shooting tips for free-motion machine quilters.
Rob teaches tension tips, proper set up and the ergonomics of machine quilting.
Machingers can be purchased at your local quilt shop.
Rob takes questions from the audience and shares behind-the-scene stories of quilting professionals.
