Whether youre an armchair traveler or a world explorer, a key building block to developing your quilt style is an openness to other cultures and countries they can be a wealth of inspiration to expand our quilting expression. We begin with world traveler, Luana Rubin. Travel with her to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England and learn about the European art quilt movement. Then Lyric Montgomery Kinard makes whole cloth Celtic knots, using her technique of Apli-Punto that creates a trapunto... [see more] effect without slitting and stuffing. We close the show with Suzan Engler as she explores ways to use digitally prepared fabrics.
Quilting Arts explores art quilting on the surface - and beyond. Using a variety of fabrics, fibers, mediums and designs, Susan and her amazing, creative guest artists show you how to make contemporary quilting a part of every day with Quilting Arts.
