The paper-piecing challenge continues! In this episode, Mary picks up right where we left off and shows you how to quilt by "building a block from the back” using the paper-piecing technique that need not scare any beginning quilter. Give yourself some time, some sizable quilting fabric scraps and a paper-piece pattern and try it out for yourself as Mary takes you through the steps. This quilting project is totally do-able and Quilty is here to prove it. Check out the show and pass it onto anyone who thinks paper-piecing isn’t for them.

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!
