How to Make an Art Deco Quilt with Don Linn
(Show 910) Admittedly "drug to a show of blankets" by his wife, Don Linn discovered a whole new world in quilting. The quilt artist, teacher, and author - now known as Mr.Quilt among friends and fellow quilters - describes how he began by quilting for others on a longarm machine, and soon moved to designing his own work. He shares his current passion for Art Deco with a show and tell of his quilts, and demos the "how-I-did-its" of his quilt, Flying High, inspired by this episode's location, the United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel in Colorado Springs. Alex adds to the learning with a lesson on how to make "chicklette sticks" (or Sticks and Stones), and Alex and Ricky view the Academy's weekly parade formation of 4,300 cadets and enjoy a Chapel tour with Cadet Teddy Reicks.
