Quilting Arts

Stitch, Quilt, And Finish

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
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 Davila who shares edge-finishing techniques involving stitch, machine decorative stitching, and stitch and paint-all suitable for small quilts.
