Quilting Arts TV Episode 1204--It's All in the Technique

25 Jul 2013

We all love adding new ideas and materials to our quilting repertoire. Cheryl Sleboda demonstrates how a vintage technique can be the source of new inspiration. Her heirloom smocking project transforms a piece of fabric into one that looks like it's been woven. Then, artist Linda McLaughlin shares a technique for using masks in deconstructed screen printing. In the last segment, host Pokey Bolton shares some drugstore finds to make quilting easier and inexpensive.
