Quilting Arts

Latest Episodes

With collage, experiment with new colors, textures and mediums. Frieda Anderson and Laura Wasilowski join creative forces to make a stunning leaf collage. Kristen Rodriguez and Janelle Girod mix photo transfers with hand-quilting, embroidery and embellishment to create a treasured keepsake.

Every once in a while we need to jump-start our creativity. Maybe it's finding a new source of inspiration or a new supply, and sometimes it's as simple as learning a new technique. This episode does all three. First it's simple shibori with Jeannie Palmer Moore: learn the art of resist painting. Then, meet Jane Davila. She creates watercolor-like quilts with free-motion stitching. We end today with the first of our UFOs-those unfinished projects in need of a little inspiration.

Transferring art images from one medium to another expresses old cultures in new ways. Art quilter Enid Gjelten Weichselbaum translates ancient Norse sagas into story quilts. Quiltmaker Pepper Cory celebrates Far East culture with patchwork and sashiko to create wrapping cloths called furoshiki.

Break away from straight lines and add curves. Quilting free-styler Frieda Anderson shows how to use freezer paper and glue to achieve perfectly curved leaves. To add a little whimsy, Lisa Chin creates custom-cut stencils using a computer and electronic cutter.

Creative use of negative space adds impact to art and quilts. Quilter and maker of wearable art, Jenny Lyon channels her garment background to create a high-fashion cutwork scarf. Fiber artist Lisa Walton makes an original art quilt using fused fabrics and free-hand cutting techniques.

Our motto is make time for contemporary quilting every day. First is artist Marlene Glickman. She shows how to create a daily record in fabric, by making a small collage made from scrappy bits and pieces mounted on fusible fleece and free motion quilted. Next, artist Ana Buzzalino demonstrates a hand embroidery technique using an electric needle. Then, Cheryl Sleboda shares a concept called the weekly quilts showcase. Learn how Cheryl uses her small weekly quilt series to stay inspired and keep creating every day.
