Show 812 - Protect our Planet...with Quilts

Featuring: Rob Appell

Posts On: June 6, 2011


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.

Thanks TQS for re-posting Rob's showing from June 2011. Love Rob (of course), but his heat and bond applique method came at a very timely time for me !!
