Join us in Episode 708 as Alex and Ricky teach you how to “plant your fabric stash with interest” using colorful window boxes from Alden Lane Nursery. Florals take the place of fabrics as they demonstrate the concept of visual texture, and how mixing the patterns and print scale in the fabrics you choose can add interest and personality to your quilts. Then, TQS welcomes quilt artist Marcia Stein, who talks about developing a personal style, and demonstrates how she builds a quilt based on a photograph. Lots of juicy details here, including “the skinny” on needles, thread weight and color, stitch length, and Marcia’s virtually invisible, super-tiny zigzag, machine-appliqué technique.
