I just finished editing “A Quilter’s Touch” episode in which I visited Dianne Miller’s Design Studio and had a quick lesson on reverse applique. Watch your local cable listings for this show. As I entered the antique barn, I felt inspired and warm. Dianne has created two large design walls, a seating area with a chair and two sofas, a light table, her domestic machine area, a longarm machine area and shelves and ladders filled with quilts at various stages of completion.
The show takes the viewers through a tour of her studio and her quilting journey. Art quilts, antique quilts, and hand applique quilts are shown with beautiful details and memories sewn in. Although I rarely work in reproduction fabrics, I have been inspired to start an applique quilt and cut away the backing to prevent friction. Yes, I did learn quite a bit myself.
Dianne was so charming and her love of the quilting lifestyle is evident. I hope you request a DVD from HCAT 508-429-8979 and enjoy the show. OR ask your local cable station to run the show. It is meant for quilters of all ages and abilities.
Thanks again Dianne!
