Shark Bait NEW

Quilt as you go. Two-and-a-half-inch strips. Prairie points. Fusible applique. Plush fabric stuffed with scraps. Only Angela Huffman could combine these elements from a quilter's tackle box of techniques, and reel in a cat bed... shaped like a shark.

Which Way Around? NEW

On the previous season of "Love of Quilting," Sara Gallegos learned about the Disappearing Hourglass quilt block from a guest. She was so delighted; she designed a quilt using this method with her favorite patchwork unit: the pinwheel! Which Way Around? incorporates several Disappearing Pinwheel blocks (all using fat quarters) to create a maze of patchwork play!

Forest & Flowers NEW

Angela Huffman has long been fascinated by the artistic power of sashing. For this episode, she designed a quilt, Forest & Flowers, that really plays with that element, relying on thin strips to create a secondary design. Angela's favorite V-Block unit helps the create motion, and tricks the eye into extending the shape of her pinwheel block.
