If you have been following along with our Show Techniques program you should have a nice collection of blocks.  Why not make a cover for your notebook? 
We have created a printable pdf sheet featuring our Sampler Quilt that will be on display in our Booth at the Houston Quilt Festival this fall.  Print out the sheet and slip it in the cover of your notebook.  How simple is that?

Once again, we delve into Jinny's book, The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns, to test your knowledge of quilt blocks and to inspire you for future quilts. 

But now we are adding a bit more challenge by using previous game blocks that are now randomly mixed.  See how many you can remember.

Alex and Ricky welcome artist and author Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero (Episode 507) back to the TQS studio for a look at some of her newest work, which marries machine embroidery with her trademark Kaleidoscope designs.

Jeanie, a former software engineer for Hewlett-Packard, explains how to select an image, print it on fabric, transform it into a unique design using her Kaleidoscope Kreator program, and then enhance it with machine embroidery.

In addition, Connie Fanders, Director of Education for BERNINA USA, shows a quick-and-easy way to make a rag quilt (and more) using your serger.

Back to Top
Posted in Just for Fun  |   Submit a Comment

The BERNINA Patchwork Foot No. 97 and 97D were created for the precise sewing of patchwork projects on machines with 9mm stitch width. The foot comes with a patchwork seam guide to make it easy to guide the fabric through the machine in a straight line.  It is recommended that the Straight Stitch Plate be used in conjunction with the Patchwork Foot.

In this video, you will find out how to attach the patchwork foot and the seam guide, which stitch plate and settings to use, and how to sew with the desired seam allowance. The video also includes detailed step-by-step instructions on how to precisely sew a mitered corner.

Feather Zone is a collaboration between Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero and Teri Lucas.  Jeanie says, "It was a bit of a challenge to put together the first time around -- so much so that I scrapped that attempt and started over." We think the second time around is quite stunning.  To learn more about the making of the quilt and to see close-ups, click here and here.
