Four Disc Set hosted by Patricia Bolton
Join host Pokey Bolton and her guests to see fresh ideas for contemporary quilt design. This season, we explore fabric selection and piecing techniques (from traditional to improvisational); embellishments (from metals and found materials to dyed buttons and trims); strategies for displaying and shipping quilts; mixed-media art quilt ideas; software for quilt design; and much more. Surface design techniques include screen printing with dye, painting after stitching; permanent mark-making with pastels, charcoal, and water-soluble crayons; monoprinting; and more. Plus, learn time-saving tips with new gadgets and special techniques.
Projects include a messenger bag that features fused appliqué and stitch; a stenciled and free-motion stitched business card holder; place mats; an apron; a colorful scarf; 3-D fabric houses; a fabric collaged/painted canvas tote; and for pets: a doggie bed, a dog jacket, and pet portraits. And…the popular Save My UFO! segments are back, with Pokey and a guest discussing design issues for UFOs (UnFinished Objects) sent in by viewers. There is something for every level and style of quilter.
