Word Quilts with Tonya Ricucci | Quilt Studio Visit Patty Hawkins
(Show 907) Prepare for some fun, as that UnRuly Quilter, Tonya Ricucci, shows you how to get your message across with "word play" on your quilts. Tonya - an author and popular blogger - shares a sampling of her whimsical quilts, and demonstrates her fun-and-freeing techniques and tips for piecing improvisational letters, words, and phrases. Alex "gets a word in" too, demonstrating how to make easy fabric letters with the aid of an index card. Then we head off to the Rocky Mountain town of Estes Park, CO, to check in with textile artist Patty Hawkins, who treats us to a look at her beautiful quilts, inspired by the ever-changing Colorado landscape and crafted from her own luscious fabrics. Patty walks us through her design process for collage landscape quilts.
