Quilting Simplified (Episode #1308)

Today's show features some simplified versions for common quilt techniques. First, Vivika DeNegre demonstrates a nine patch rearranged quilt for a modern spin on this common block. Then, Julia Wood introduces an unconventional hexagon technique that doesn't require paper piecing. Last, Carolyn Friedlander has a raw edge applique project using bobbin work.

Modern Quilting Meets Folk Art (Episode #1307)

KQED Life: Mon, Mar 16, 2015 -- 2:30 PM

Two very distinct quilt approaches, modern quilting and folk art, have one very important element in common-they both thrive on a simple clean aesthetic. Today's three designers take a simple approach with very different techniques. First, Catherine Redford makes a modern place mat using hexagons. Then, Ebony love demonstrates die-cut trapunto. Finally, Michelle May shows how to create a felted flower brooch in the folk art style.

Machine and Hand Stitching Explored (Episode #1306)

KQED Life: Mon, Mar 9, 2015 -- 2:30 PM

Today we explore the many facets of stitching from hand to machine. The stitch path is the blueprint for many quilt designs. First, Candy Glendening has a free motion sampler. Then, Catherine Redford demonstrates an embroidered chameleon using African folklore embroidery techniques. Last is Michelle May and more folk art-this time its postcards made from wool.

Contemporary Approaches to Traditional Technique (Episode #1305)

KQED Life: Mon, Mar 2, 2015 -- 2:30 PM

There is always a lot of discussion on what makes a traditional technique have a contemporary feel. It could be the colors, it might be the simplicity of the design, and sometimes it's even negative space. Today's show features current artists sharing their interpretation of some traditional techniques. Cheryl Sleboda demonstrates dimensional fabric manipulation of circles. Then, Michelle May has an introduction to folk art fusion. The fun and whimsy of folk art is fused together with the freedom of art quilting. Finally, Max Hamrick, a dye expert from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, has a lesson on organic dyes passed down thru the years.
