Quilting Arts TV Episode 205

25 Jan 2011

205 Thread is the Focus

The hallmark of contemporary quilting is the use of thread in a new way. Instead of being content to only use thread as a way to quilt pieces of fabric or stitch on an applique, today's quilter uses thread as its own feature to the surface of their work. Heidi Lund demonstrates free-motion dimensional leaves using thread, fabric, and water-soluble stabilizer. Pokey Bolton has an easy trick for thread painting by first printing images in organza. Joyce Drexler shows a free-motion thread painting, and Sue Hausmann uses software to add stippling to her quilt.
