Designing for models and a high-fashion runway is obviously tons of fun. But creating dream dresses for everyday women — especially those who give their all serving their communities — gives creative satisfaction a whole new meaning. That's exactly what the designers were tasked with this week, and their gorgeous dresses (and the awesome women who rocked them!) have us feeling inspired to twirl in our own eye-catching DIY looks.
How do you turn a pile of fabric into a textured wall hanging bursting with color? Award-winning quilter and "Midnight Quilt Show" host Angela Walters shows you how. She uses foundation strips for easy improvisational piecing, then adds metallic hand stitches and tassels to complete the look.
