On this episode of Love of Quilting, Angela Huffman and Sara Gallegos take direction from dyeing techniques! The jewel-like quilt design is inspired by Asian ikat dyeing, and the colors take advantage of ombre fabrics. Constructed with paper piecing and finished with freemotion quilting, Sapphire Ikat is a to-dye-for quilt!

Marianne and Mary Fons are back on the set as special guests. On this episode, they explore a quilt made by Marianne using "orphan" blocks - unfinished, vintage quilt blocks that you often find at garage sales or quilt festivals. The design is simple and quick enough, that Marianne put together not one, but two variations!

The return of the apron has inspired this episode. Mary Fons and guest Jenny Doan demonstrate how to use a tea towel to make an apron and then embellish it using a serger to create ruffles. Jenny will also share techniques for using the serger to finish edges, sew seams, and attach ruffles.
