8:00 AM Sewing with Nancy "Change-Up Patchwork" Join host Nancy Zieman as she demonstrates to how create simple quilt blocks-the 4-patch, 9-patch, and square-within-the-square- then change up the arrangements, sizes, and colors to achieve nine modern quilt projects. Nancy shares quilting tips that save time, make quilting more enjoyable, and achieve terrific results. Part 1: Nancy starts this mini-series with a basic quilt block, the time-honored 4-patch design, and details the piecing techniques. Then watch as she changes it up, adjusting the sizes of the 4-patch design and working with modern color options. The results are dramatic, yet the sewing techniques are the same. This is an ideal series for beginner quilters. Part 2: Make a Square Within a Square quilt block; then vary the fabric sizes for creative options. Learn to make a Square Within a Square block the traditional way; then change the mix, varying the length of the fabric pieces to stitch a Rectangle Within a Rectangle and a modern Floating Square block. All blocks and quilt designs are made with Nancy's signature streamline quilting techniques. Part 3: Make a 9-patch block; then change fabric sizes to show artistic options. Nancy shows you the basics of stitching the versatile 9-patch quilt block, and then she details how to take a fresh approach toward assembling the block to change it up! Modify the size of the fabric strips, use fabric scraps to make a vintage quilt, or change the color to provide artistic options.
