Patchy Stars (Episode #3004H)

KQED Life: Mon, Aug 14, 2017 -- 2:00 PM

Designer Christina McCourt's Patchy Stars is rich with unexpected techniques, including a strip-set corner that looks mitered, but isn't. Host Sara Gallegos and Christina break down the construction of this medallion-style quilt into simple lessons.

Parisian Posies (Episode #3003H)

KQED Life: Mon, Aug 7, 2017 -- 2:00 PM

Hexagons abound in Parisian Posies, a lovely, small quilt constructed with English paper piecing.
