Colorful Illusions (Episode #1013)

KQED Life: Mon, Oct 29, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

We often explore different ways to create unique surface effects with paints or dyes, and this episode's designers share some very interesting ways to add and take away color. First, Jo Fitsell presents a fabric marbling technique using stencils. Next, Jeannie Palmer Moore is back with a lesson on preserving the white! She shows us how to do resists on fabric using screen printing ink and then she brushes on color using dyes. We end today's show with another "Save my UFO" segment, where Pokey offers some ideas on saving an unfinished quilt.

Artfully Pieced (Episode #1012)

KQED Life: Mon, Oct 22, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

This episode looks at piecing and how we put together our fabric and color elements to create an artfully pieced quilt. It seems like such a simple concept but it's a new way of looking at your quilt. Kathleen Loomis starts us out with a lesson on piecing in art quilting. Follow her expert guidance for a new direction to take. Then, returning guest Ana Buzzalino takes us from sketch to stitch. She uses free-motion machine quilting to stitch vignettes from sketches and photographs. Finally, we have another edition of unfinished quilts and some ideas for finishing in our UFO segment.

It's One-Of-A-Kind! (Episode #1011)

KQED Life: Mon, Oct 15, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

One of the trademark characteristics of art and artists is uniqueness. Artists pride themselves on taking a personal approach to the artistic process. This results in work that reflects their personality and is one-of-a-kind. Jo Fitsell is our first artist. She shares fabric marbling techniques to create layered and organic effects. Then, meet Jeannie Palmer Moore as she creates a unique canvas for the addition of color. Finally, Ana Buzzalino gives one final machine quilting lesson: using stencils as an aid for free-motion work.

Art Meets Stitch (Episode #1010)

KQED Life: Mon, Oct 8, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

This episode looks at thread and stitch and their impact on projects. Rebecca Kemp Brent starts us out with a small drawstring bag. All sorts of stitching is prominent, from the machine-embroidered redwork designs to the enhancements with needle felting, punch needle work, ribbon embroidery, and beading. Then, Rayna Gillman is back for a return visit featuring her slicing techniques with hand-printed fabrics to create free-form strip sets. Finally we have another returning guest: Jane Davila gives a lesson on combining stitch, fabric, and paper.

Quilts at Play (Episode #1005)

KQED Life: Mon, Oct 1, 2012 -- 2:30 PM

Quilting is all about having fun-don't take yourself or your quilting too seriously. We begin with Heather Jones as she stretches her improvisational piecing skills with an easy wall hanging. Then, Deborah Boschert is back to create a sheer silhouette over a dramatic fabric background with free-motion stitching and clever layering of materials. We finish up with Sophie and Luana Rubin for a youthful perspective on the process of learning to quilt.
