Favorite stitcher Libby Lehman is back with expert tips to change your satin stitching from mediocre to magnificent. Then, celebrate the season with some festive fabric flags.

Stitch Designs In Quilting (Episode #1112)

KQED Life: Mon, Apr 22, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

Whether by hand or machine, there is an endless array of patterns and designs to enhance your quilts. Laura Wasilowski starts out with tips for adding hand stitches to abstract quilt blocks for texture and style. Then, Angela Walters introduces the "tiles" quilt design in free motion. We finish up with special guest Sophie Rubin and a young perspective as she visits a quilt show and chooses some of her favorite designs.

Adding Texture (Episode #1111)

KQED Life: Mon, Apr 15, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

There are many different materials and techniques for giving your quilts added texture. Ellen Anne Eddy is back with a continuation of last week's lesson. She has unique ideas on couching including a discussion of the feet to use. Then, Jane LaFazio returns with "text to textiles". From writing on fabric to a journal prompt, Jane will get you texting. Finally Wendy Butler Berns helps us overcome the fear of free motion quilting. It's really easy; but that first try is a little intimidating as you forget everything you've learned about stitching.

Then, meet designer Debra Quartermain for quick and easy dying techniques for wool, plus a pattern for some very adorable owls. Finally, Elizabeth Hartman shows us simple paper foundation piecing.
