Free-Motion Work (Episode #1004)

KQED Life: Mon, Aug 27, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

Free-motion stitching is a favorite topic for art quilters; unique thread patterns are an all-important layer in contemporary quilting. We begin with Ellen Anne Eddy and her free-motion techniques for making flower motifs. She's making pattern-free embellished flowers with free-motion applique stitching. Then, meet Lindsey Murray for some of the best quilt storage and organization tips for both your machine and your studio. Finally, Ana Buzzalino presents lesson 4 of our free-motion stitching tutorials: using a basic free-motion machine quilting design in different configurations for interesting effects.

Make It Work! (Episode #1003)

KQED Life: Mon, Aug 20, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

How do you make your quilting work? What determines if all of the elements come together in a harmonious way? This episode looks at some of the ways to have a finished project where all of the "pieces" come together! First, Helen Gregory shares a patchwork computer bag-it's the choice of fabric that makes this project work. Next, Deborah Boschert offers a lesson on combining a linear background composition with organic shapes in stitch or paint-two very different elements that "work". Finally, Ana Buzzalino provides another machine stitching lesson: how to make perfect free-motion feathers.

Experimental Quilting and Surface Design (Episode #1002)

KQED Life: Mon, Aug 13, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

This episode introduces some experimental concepts using both thread and paint. Ellen Anne Eddy starts out with a demonstration of free-motion bobbin work with hand-dyed and metallic threads. Then, meet Marcia Derse as she shows us resist dyeing techniques for creating unique fabric designs with infinite color combinations: first is monoprinting, and then she shows over-dyeing with thickened dyes. Finally, it's lesson 2 with Ana Buzzalino: tips and tricks to make free-motion machine quilting easier.

Modern Day Quilting (Episode #1001)

KQED Life: Mon, Aug 6, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

Contemporary quilters are redefining just what modern means. First, Heather Jones presents a scrappy contemporary log cabin pillow with a modern quilt aesthetic. Then, meet Deborah Boschert for illuminated letters-using text as a design element for one-of-a-kind quilts. She presents a technique for creating monograms and initial letters out of foil paper. We finish up with expert Ana Buzzalino for the first of her machine quilting tutorials. Today she reviews accessories that make machine quilting easier.
