Textile hangings are one of the best ways to make a major statement on your walls. The materials are inexpensive, and cloth pieces are a lot easier to manage than large, heavy framed art. Plus creating it yourself means you'll have a piece that's exactly right for your space: the ideal size, the perfect colors and completely one-of-a-kind!
All quilters can get stuck in a creative rut, even Angela. This week, she turns to strip piecing and her fun, easy-to-piece chevron pattern to get her quilting mojo back. Plus, she'll show you how to use negative space to bring your quilt to life.
Are you a "slow and steady" quilter or more of a "forget perfect, finish fast" quilter like Angela? Tonight, she uses templates and block piecing with LOTS of triangles to create an out-of-this-world ombré quilt. Plus, she shares some handy tips for quilting with rulers.
As quilters, we make lots of HSTs (half-square triangles). If you like the two-at-a-time method, Angela has the hack for you! Watch as she uses painter's tape to sew quarter-inch seams instead of marking each square.
