Quilting Arts TV Episode 1008: Stitch, Quilt, and Finish

It’s hard to define the common elements of an art quilt, but at the most basic level all have stitching, quilting, and finishing plus the added element of a contemporary attitude. This episode begins with a segment taped on location with Valori Wells: fabric designer, sewer, and quilter. She presents a modern quilt featuring paint, embroidery, machine stitching, and specialty fabric—for an integrated design. Then Luana Rubin, trend expert and chair holder in the Color Marketing Group, returns to the show. Learn about two key trends in the industry today. We finish up—literally—with Jane Dávila who shares edge-finishing techniques involving stitch, machine decorative stitching, and stitch and paint—all suitable for small quilts.

  1. Just exactly what is the elephant used on Valori Wells project? Is it a stencil? Is it part of the fabric design? And most importantly, where can I obtain Mr. Elephant????? I was in India three years ago and have fallen in love with the gentle beasts. Namaste!

  2. Ok so how do I get info on how to make the elephant. she shows painting and stitches on it but now how to get “it” I would rilly like to try making a elephant of my own. The fabric at amizon looks close but it isn’t the same. This is just one blue elephant here not an all over print.
