Quilting Arts TV Episode 1002: Experimental Quilting & Surface Design

17 May 2012

This episode introduces some experimental concepts using both thread and paint. Learning is a lifelong process in every endeavor and especially in something as creative as quilting. Ellen Anne Eddy starts out with a demonstration of free-motion bobbin work with hand-dyed and metallic threads. Then meet Marcia Derse as she shows us resist dyeing techniques for creating unique fabric designs with infinite color combinations: first is monoprinting, and then she shows over-dyeing with thickened dyes. Finally it’s lesson 2 with Ana Buzzalino: tips and tricks to make free-motion machine quilting easier.
