Alex and Ricky each have their favorite – and least favorite – tools for marking quilts. They debate the merits and drawbacks of various tools.
Janna Thomas finds much of her quilting inspiration in flowers and antique stitchery designs. Her specialty is borders, and she shares her ideas for transitioning a quilt from the center out to the border – or borders! She is a stickler for accuracy, and she shares basic tips on creating accurate blocks, as well as how to prepare and handle them during assembly, to keep them from losing their shape. She demonstrates how to make quick diamond-in-a-square and triangle-in-a-square blocks. Frustration with her cutting ruler prompted her husband Paul to design a new ruler for her, and they now have a quilting tool company. They share the sweet story of how they met, and why they named their company Courtship Quilts.
