Episode 1601 Preview Quilting Arts TV Series 1600

Art Quilt Design from a Different Point of View: In this episode, learn how tiny lines and slivers of unexpected color can add depth and character to an art quilt. Improvisational quilt artist Pat Pauly shows how to add a linear quality to quilt designs by including beautifully pieced thin lines. Then, fiber artist Nysha Oren Nelson designs a double-sided quilt with two different points of view that can be admired from either side.

  1. I enjoy this show; however, the one thing I wish would stop happening is that Susan Brubaker Knapp keeps interrupting the guest speakers. It was especially upsetting during this episode when Margie Ullery was trying to talk and it was clear that the interruptions caused Ms. Ullery to get rattled.

    If I didn’t have the option to keep hitting “rewind” on my television, I would miss so much–and as it is, even with rewinding sometimes it’s impossible to separate the two voices so I can hear the point that was attempted to be made.

    Please stop with the interruptions. Perhaps a solution would be to let the speaker make their statement first, then when they stop talking, ask whatever it is you wanted to ask or clarify whatever it is you wanted to clarify.

    Thank you!

    1. Thank you for your comments, Barb. Margie Ullery was a guest on “Quilting Arts TV” Series 1400, Susan’s first season as host. I hope you have a chance to view later seasons as well, to see how well Susan is “getting into the groove” and improving her hosting skills!

  2. In episode 1601 there was a ruler that folded up and was used to make a perfect 90 degree miter and it also squared up the corner of the quilt. Could you give me the name of this ruler and where I can get one.

    Thank you.

      1. Hi again, Nichola. I heard back from Nysha; it is an Easy Square Ruler, formerly called the Salem Ruler, and it is available in 16″ and 24″. They are readily available online or check with your local quilt store–if they don’t have it in stock, they may be willing to order one for you. Good luck and happy quilting!

  3. Well, I’ve attempted to navigate your “new and improved” website and what was relatively simple now is complicated. I’ve encountered “Page not found” three times from selections I’ve made from your printed options. And I guess getting “the instructions will be on the website” is no more. I certainly can’t find anything. I watched the 3rd episode of Season 16 today and all I can find is previews. Is there new management? Go back to the old.

    1. Dear Elsie, I’m so sorry to hear of your difficulties and I certainly understand your frustration. I hope you appreciate we are working hard to fix these issues. Can you please share which particular directions you are looking for? In the meantime, I will review all of the links for the projects for Series 1600. All of the directions we received from the guests on “Quilting Arts TV” Series 1600 are now available–some for purchase, some for free to Quilting Daily members.

  4. There used to be comprehensive written instructions on the techniques demonstrated in each show. Where can I find the written information on Pat Pauly’s pieced thin lines that I can use for future reference as shown on Episode 1601?

    Thank you!

    1. Dear Nina, thank you for your note. Directions for segments on “Quilting Arts TV” are still available, when provided by the guest. Starting with Series 1600, some of the project directions are free and some of the more involved ones are available for purchase at the Interweave store.

      The instructions for Pat Pauly’s skinny lines is available for purchase here: http://www.interweavestore.com/episode-1601-1-pat-pauly-piecing-skinny-lines .

      Happy quilting.

  5. I enjoy the show but wish Susan would stop talking so much. She interrupts and talks over the person demonstrating. I want to hear the person doing the DEMONSTRATION….not Susan!!!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Noelle. Susan is a thoughtful and curious person who is very enthused by the guests on “Quilting Arts TV.” She is aware of comments like yours and continually working on improving. Also, you might be interested to know that Susan wears an earpiece during the taping of the episodes and often receives instructions from the ‘control booth’ to ask a certain question, etc.
