Art Meets Tradition (Episode #1104)

KQED Life: Mon, Feb 25, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

The lines keep blurring between various types of design. Design trends evolve and elements of traditional quilting find their place in modern design, and art quilting influences some very traditional looks. On today's show the two styles meet with great results. We begin with Ginny Eckley for a lesson on frameless screen printing, an easy way to try out printing. Then, Sherry Rogers Harrison joins us with a trapunto project with great dimension. Finally Angela Walters shows us dot to dot quilting; a technique that uses the block itself as a guide for quilting.

Innovative Stitch Techniques (Episode #1103)

KQED Life: Mon, Feb 18, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

Whether you're embellishing, joining or quilting - stitching is one of the most important parts of any quilt project. On today's show we begin with Libby Lehman and bobbin drawing. Learn how to adjust any bobbin for sewing with thicker decorative threads. Then, meet Wendy Butler Berns for a lesson on "taming your tension". It can make all the difference in sewing thru multiple layers and using different fabrics. Finally, Jane Novinsky joins us for a design lesson on designing modern quilts using soft ware.

Studio Play! (Episode #1102)

KQED Life: Mon, Feb 11, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

The creative process is not always a straight line from point "a" to point "b". A big part of design is learning how to play! Ginny Eckley starts us out with a way to combine several surface designs, a twist on pleating, and tie dye with soy wax. Then, meet Jane LaFazio for working and playing with stencils. We finish up with Carol Ann Waugh and discovering the hidden stitches in your sewing machine. Learn how to adjust or play with stitch width and length to create new decorative stitches.

Exploring Modern Quilting (Episode #1101)

KQED Life: Mon, Feb 4, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

Quilting Arts has always taken a contemporary approach to quilting, but did you know there is an entire movement known as modern quilting? It's a new aesthetic with clean lines and a graphic style all its own. First up is Elizabeth Hartman with some unique quilt sandwiches and tips for quilt block math. Then, meet Heather Jones with a lesson on thread choices for modern quilting. We finish up with tips from Frieda Anderson. Learn constructing on the point and color wheel theory, on a sofa quilt.
