It cannot be denied: Quilt blocks are addictive. On this installment of Quilty, Mary shows you, step by step, how to construct a Rolling Stone block — and you'll be hooked instantly. There are no curved edges in this simple block, but the circle that emerges when all the pieces are put together will fool them all! Ha-HA!
Learn how to make a "flippy corner" unit and work with strip sets in this fun and highly informative "Blocks-a-Go-Go" episode of Quilty. Then go listen to Bob Dylan while you sew — a perfect afternoon, really.

Quilty: Finally, a home for rookie quilters. Not everyone knows how to thread a sewing machine. It's okay! Quilty is here to help. Quilty is a weekly quilting show offered online that seeks to inform and inspire the next generation of quilters. Hosted by Mary Fons, a J.V. quilter and co-host of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting on PBS, Quilty delivers great quilting instruction with humor, zest, and respect for the art of quilting. Many of today’s newer quilters visit quilt shops or randomly surf online with little to no knowledge of quilting basics. They feel bummed out and lost and often bail on the idea of making a quilt altogether. This is a tragedy of epic proportions! But it's no wonder: The home ec classes our mothers and grandmothers took were replaced by computer classes when we were in school. So it's Quilty's mission to teach rudimentary quilting skills in a friendly, welcoming way. There will be more advanced techniques, too, but the goal is always to inspire every viewer to make a quilt of her own after seeing just one episode. There's a new Quilty episode once a week. With style, class, and a sense of humor, Quilty aims to ignite new passion for the American quilt. Let's do this. For more Quilty and other related Quilting shows, visit QNNtv.com!
