#4003 Feather Love I
This episode—part one of a two-part series—Angela Huffman teaches you how to create a column-style quilt inspired by feathers called Feather Love, by Ramona Sorensen. In addition to the construction techniques, she explores changing to adapting the color palette, free-motion quilting on a home sewing machine, and how to work with an unusual, heat-resistant batting.

#4004 Feather Love II

Whether you’re using digitized quilting or rulers or free-motion to make them, these feather designs will be a feather in your quilting cap!

#4005 Remembered

#4006 Scoops by the Seaside
Inspired by ice cream cones on seaside boardwalk, Angela Huffman created a table runner perfect for any birthday celebration! Using batik pre-cut packs, this design captures every flavor of ice cream, and transforms prairie points into two-toned “party points!” Learn a handy facing technique and how to incorporate custom embroidery.

#4007 Paradise Garden
Create your own custom panel using all the fun functions on your embroidery machine! Guest Nadine Knecht joins Sara Gallegos to showcase creating embellished backgrounds with lettering and specialty stitches, and how to place designs in a quilt block so they wrap around corners.

#4008 Cabin at Bear Lake
Sara Gallegos designed this cozy, flannel quilt to use at her family’s lakeside cottage. Incorporating a Bear Paw block (for Bear Lake) and a Log Cabin block (for their log cabin cottage), this quilt also uses an interesting sashing technique. A classic worth cherishing, this quilt has a traditional appeal.

#4009 Bluegrass Jamboree
Reminiscent of fireworks at the local festival, Angela Huffman’s striking quilt uses simple techniques combined with economy of scale for a dazzling design. In addition to the stitch-and-flip approach to yields extra “sparklers” for t border, Angela teaches a strip-piecing technique for what would typically be a foundation-pieced block.

#4010 Enchanted Garden
Sara Gallegos is joined by guest Nadine Knecht, who teaches you how to take a simple hexagon design and really have a blast! You’ll explore motif placement, using clip art and sewing stitches in an embroidery hoop, hand-coloring your own fabric, and even how to create a custom, lace-edge flange.

#4013 A Bit Fishy
Guest Valerie Uland joins Sara Gallegos to show off a delightful, fish-inspired baby quilt! This underwater world is a wonderful place to explore techniques like windowing appliqué and decorative stitching.
