At the Quilt Show with Alex and Ricky
Alex is a long time friend and when the chance to be on THE QUILT SHOW comes up - I always say YES! I am fortunate to have appeared on TQS for Ribbon Applique, T-Shirt Quilts and most recently a segment on Ruching. The TQS blog has recently featured "Americana Baltimore" in the newsletter, sharing the stories about each block with close up pictures. I hope you get a chance to read the Newsletter, see the shows and enjoy what THE QUILT SHOW has to offer every quilter.
Ruched Ribbon Flowers on The Quilt Show. I have made a number of fascinators with ruched ribbon flowers. The flowers are easy to make and stitch to a head band or place on a hair clip. In this segment on THE QUILT SHOW I show Alex how to make these luscious flowers with a variety of ribbons. Ruth Chandler is also on this show with a variety of hand embroidery techniques you don't want to miss!

I am so excited! Alex is a long time friend. On a quilting weekend she watched me work on my daughter Lorel's t-shirt quilt. Later in the year she called- they were getting ready to tape the show on T-Shirt Quilts and the guest artists scheduled were suddenly not available - could I help them out? YES!!
I had a wonderful time on set with Alex and Ricky and was shocked how fast the time went. We reviewed quilts I made as well as a few from my students. Then we walked through how to put a t-shirt Quilt together with my grandebaby Stevie Jean pictures and tiny onsies! OMG the quilt is so cute and I love it when I have pictures of the owner in the t-shirts used in the quilt. It is all pieced - just waiting to be quilted.....

My first experience on TheQuiltShow.com was to share Ribbon Applique. I was working on the border of the quilt below and shared my book Ribbon Applique - A Primer based on the Valentine quilt. You can find Ribbon Applique here in the store . To watch the show you will need to join TheQuiltShow.com! The site is packed with over 250 shows on Quilting - everything from TQS Legends, traditional quilts, art quilts, classrooms and a huge gallery of quilts. They even have quilt puzzles :) Everything you need to get started or explore quilting is in the TQS Store!
