Join Sara Gallegos and Angela Huffman in the quilting studio for the 3800 series of “Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting” to discover new techniques and fun projects. From a softened Storm at Sea pattern, to a color-themed string quilt, the projects on this show range from scrappy to planned, easy to challenging, quick to heirloom-worthy. Joining Sara and Angela are guests Debi Kuennen-Baker, who helps master your sewing machine, and Barbara J. Eikmeier, who shares two scrappy quilts with an historical legacy.

#3801 Bubble Circuits
There’s more than one way to make a perfect circle! Angela Huffman reinterprets a pattern from Susan McDermott, called Bubble Circuits, as a baby quilt, showcasing various ways to create circles. From hand appliqué to special tools, find your own circle on this episode of “Love of Quilting”!

#3802 Barn Dance
Inspired by the barn quilt trails popular across the country, Sara Gallegos designed Barn Dance, a project that serves as a sampler quilt. Sara shows how to construct Barn quilt blocks featuring Pinwheel and Square-in-a-Square block in-sets. You’ll also learn how you can customize with collage-style fussy-cutting and buttons!

#3803 Louisville Spirit
Scrappy string-piecing is the way to go when you need 3 college quilts! Angela’s scrap quilt plays with the school colors of her son’s university—black, red, and gold. By combining fusible batting as a foundation for string piecing with an easy-going approach to scraps, you can have a fun, cherish-able quilt in no time!

#3804 Prairie Lily
Barbara J. Eikmeier used the Prairie Lily quilt block, a classic from the 1890s, in her Block-by-Block sampler quilt. Its history and interesting combination of techniques inspired Barb to design a quilt centered solely on this antique quilt block. In this episode, she’ll show you updated techniques for achieving an historical look, as well as a surefire sashing technique that will help you with any sashed quilt!

#3805 Mermaid Feathering
Open up your imagination to swim in the moonlight with mermaids! Angela Huffman shows you how to adapt standard plumes to make them “sea feather plumes,” and how to carve out space to let those feathers frolic! You’ll also learn how to custom-create a spectacular wreath of mermaid tails.

#3806 Beachcomber
The traditional Storm at Sea quilt pattern is a rewarding challenge! The soft, sweet colors in this quilt look like the shells washed ashore after a storm at sea. Sara Gallegos finds methods to simplify the traditionally challenging design, including foundation piecing and die-cutting.

#3807 Gemstone Halos
Your sewing machine is capable of so much! Debi Kuennen-Baker uses a pattern by Ramona Sorenson called Gemstone Halos to show you all kinds of tricks and techniques on your sewing machine. You’ll learn about piping using special tools and different feet for a professional finish, and also different approaches to quilting, whether using a walking foot or a free-motion method.

#3808 Moonlight Mermaid
Angela Huffman’s elegant quilt combines traditional straight-stitched patchwork with several different approaches to appliqué. In this episode, you’ll learn how to quickly create identical appliqué patches, explore both raw-edge and faced appliqué using fusible web, and which decorative stitches work best for securing appliqué.

#3809 Tres Chic
The Drunkard’s Path quilt block is very traditional, and yet looks completely fresh and contemporary. Sara Gallegos creates a quilt using a design by Nancy McNally, but instead of black-and-white solids, she breaks out some stunning metallic prints. She also shares her 3-pin approach to curved piecing.

#3810 Pintuck Pop
Debi Kuennen-Baker is featured in this episode to teach a few fun, fresh elements that will have you expanding your quilting boundaries! Using a quilt designed by Kristen Clay, called Pintuck Pop, Debi shows how to create pintucks that do indeed pop, and gets playful with prairie points.

#3811 Spirited Daughter
Whether you call them “spirit quilts” or “daughter quilts,” use up leftover fabrics from a previous project with a simple, quick quilt! Barbara Eikmeier’s Block-by-Block sampler quilt left a lot of lovely fabrics behind, so she employed a “no scrap left behind” mind-set. Learn how to make simple Sawtooth Stars, the right approach to mitered borders, and a few tips for quilting over bulky seams!

#3812 Songbird Stars
Angela Huffman’s quilt Songbird Stars features a single quilt block that creates two stunning star designs. The border features a spectacular traditional Birds in the Air quilt block, made in a unique, time-saving way!

#3813 Gobble Gobble
What are you grateful for? On this episode, Sara Gallegos shows how to make a Thanksgiving wall hanging featuring fusible appliqué and braided borders. We’ll explore fabric options (even using the WRONG side of the fabric!), as well as specialty threads.
