The Quilting Lifestyle (#1205) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Quilting can become an everyday activity. Surround yourself with quilting, including your studio. Up first is Lynn Krawcyk. Dress up your studio with fabric bunting. Then, meet color expert Luana Rubin. She's made quilting more than just a business - it's a passion. Learn about quilters donating to those in need and different fundraising projects. Last, Ana Buzzalino has a nifty dye technique to be done after the project is quilted - not before. We'll take a look at her thread book and samples of what each fiber looks like after it's dyed.

On Display (#1207) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Every artist approaches their art quilting in a different way - whether it's the medium or the technique. What they have in common is the desire to share their quilts. Color and dyes is Judy Coates Perez's favorite medium. She demonstrates dye pouring techniques to create beautiful fabrics. Then, designer Pauline Salzman has an art quilt show and tell. Finally, Ana Buzzalino shares a technique for mounting an art quilt on pre stretched canvas.

Mixed Media (#1208) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Contemporary quilting is hard to define - it's as varied as the artist and their choice of medium. First, Judy Coates Perez has a stitched metal project with alcohol based inks. Then, Heather Jones shares a totally different approach as chunky hand stitching takes center stage on her pillow. Finally, Debbie Grifka demonstrates her style for functional quilting. Make sure your sunglasses survive the summer with a protective cover!

Functional Quilting (#1209) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Debbie Grifka start out with a triangular shaped carry all pouch - perfect for carrying makeup and it features piping. Then, see what Iliana McGrath does with die cut fabric in a segment taped on location. Decorate your baby's room with a total ensemble created in a very short time. Last is Linda McLaughlin with an exercise in daily hand stitching. Learn why she has this routine and how she sets herself up to succeed.
