The art quilt inspiration just keeps getting better and better! Join host Pokey Bolton and many of today’s top quilt artists on an exciting journey. Tune in to see fresh ideas for contemporary quilt design and explore a multitude of artful approaches to quilt design, surface-design ideas, machine stitching techniques, and more.
Check out an array of techniques featured this season: machine quilting (from free-motion feather motifs and spirals to sketched botanical motifs and much more); sun printing; photo editing and using digital imagery in quilts; creating a shibori effect using color remover and over-dyeing; hand embroidery; using paints and acrylic inks on fabric; wood block printing; thread painting; and more!
Projects include an iPad holder; home décor ideas, such as: pillows, a coordinating table runner and coasters set, free-motion stitched place mats, a painted and quilted wholecloth holiday tree skirt, and fabric-collaged nameplates; a name badge holder; tote bags; and a fun fabric bracelet.
Plus, join Pokey on the show floor of the International Quilt Festival/Cincinnati to see quilts from two special juried exhibits.
