Mixed Bag (Episode #1213)

KQED Life: Mon, Jul 25, 2016 -- 2:30 PM

Quilting has many variations, themes and ideas - it's hard to define it just one way. First, Barbara Schneider has a lesson on digital cloth printing. Begin with a photograph and software and end up with custom cloth. Then, it's literally a "bag" with Vanessa Christenson. This little girl's tote features twisted flowers. Last, Ana Buzzalino shares a technique for applying facing to an art quilt instead of using traditional binding.

Viewpoint (Episode #1212)

KQED Life: Mon, Jul 18, 2016 -- 2:30 PM

What does an artist see and what is their viewpoint in developing a quilt or quilted project? First, Dianne Springer shares her perspective regarding functionality. She endeavors to cover everything around her with quilts and looks for easy ideas that meet the functionality of the item. Her project is an interchangeable mailbox cover she titled "Manic mailbox". Then, Barbara Schneider has a lesson on creating water quilts and the progression from photo to quilted interpretation. Last, Sophie Rubin shares her viewpoint from the eye of a child as she discusses quilts from around the world with host Pokey Bolton.

Quilting In 3d (Episode #1211)

KQED Life: Mon, Jul 11, 2016 -- 2:30 PM

By nature the quilt sandwich of batting, fabric and thread creates dimension. Part of the allure of contemporary quilting is that we take dimension one step further with surface design. Barbara Schneider starts out with 3D leaf quilts. This is true three dimensional fiber art - a lesson in shape, texture, light and shadow. Then, Lynn Krawczyk has a 3D project and fabric covered pins. Finally, Vanessa Christenson has a demonstration of ruffles. Learn the different types of ruffles based on number.

Quilting on the Go (Episode #1210)

KQED Life: Mon, Jul 4, 2016 -- 2:30 PM

First is Vanessa Christenson creating fast fabric flowers to embellish pillows or baby quilts. Then, Heather Jones is featured in a segment on the scrappy quilting movement - learn more about it and its premise of moving quickly. Finally, we feature the concept "on the go" literally - with functional quilter Debbie Grifka and a car trash bag.
