Mixed Bag (#1213) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Quilting has many variations, themes and ideas - it's hard to define it just one way. First, Barbara Schneider has a lesson on digital cloth printing. Begin with a photograph and software and end up with custom cloth. Then, it's literally a "bag" with Vanessa Christenson. This little girl's tote features twisted flowers. Last, Ana Buzzalino shares a technique for applying facing to an art quilt instead of using traditional binding.

Innovative Approaches to Quilting (#1302) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Laurie Ceesay's specialty is portrait quilts using a raw edged fused applique method. Then, Sara Hochhauser shares a very functional approach to quilting and a casserole cover that lets your artistic side shine. Finally, Cheryl Sleboda introduces e-textile technology.

Make It Your Own (#1303) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Each week the show features some of the most innovative designers in the industry. They hope to inspire you to try out some of their techniques and also see how you can incorporate their lessons into your style and make it your own. Laurie Ceesay returns to add on to her lesson on portrait quilts. She expands on the process with line drawings. Then, Judy Coates Perez is featured in a segment we taped earlier demonstrating the process of dyeing wool. Finally it's more dyeing with Candy Glendening. Dyers who live in cold climates have fun using snow as a resist to dye; Candy's technique uses ice when there is no snow around.

Perceptions and Approaches to Quilting Today (#1304) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

We all take different steps to get us to the same end result, which is a project and technique we love. Susan Brubaker Knapp begins with an image first and then transforms it into a quilt. Next, designer Ebony Love utilizes a fabric die cutter as her key element to accomplish fusible, needle turn and mock needle turn applique. Last is Sophie Rubin a young quilter with a grown up perspective on seeing trends.

Contemporary Approaches to Traditional Technique (#1305) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

There is always a lot of discussion on what makes a traditional technique have a contemporary feel. It could be the colors, it might be the simplicity of the design, and sometimes it's even negative space. Today's show features current artists sharing their interpretation of some traditional techniques. Cheryl Sleboda demonstrates dimensional fabric manipulation of circles. Then, Michelle May has an introduction to folk art fusion. The fun and whimsy of folk art is fused together with the freedom of art quilting. Finally, Max Hamrick, a dye expert from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, has a lesson on organic dyes passed down thru the years.
