Squaring up her quilts has always been a challenge for Alex. Quilts have a habit of moving as you make big cuts. But these cuts need to be accurate. Using Quilters Select rulers, Alex shows you how to square up your quilt.

Originally from Normandie, France, designer Eymeric François was trained by Thierry Mügler in his Paris fashion house. Independent since the early 2000s, Eymeric François does several haute couture fashion shows in Paris and around the world every year including Eastern Europe, Japan, and Thailand. For many years, Eymeric has been accompanied by BOHIN France to create fabulous creations made of hundreds of thousands pins in brass, steel - nickeled or not. Pins become embroidery, jewelry, lace, etc. The pin is magnified on the woman’s body who then becomes dangerous, not to say fatal… These beauties that one must approach with sensitivity will amaze you but watch out – you might get burned!
This exhibition retraces Eymeric’s creative path from the sketch to the fashion show. Our visit begins in the workshop, at the drawing board, then to the pattern work, fabric assembly and fittings. Then, we move on to the show, décor/ music/ choreography choice and, of course, the order of appearance of the dresses! Few people have the chance to attend a Haute Couture fashion show in their life, and that’s exactly the experience we want to invite you to share with us.
Yes, but it is different. Chromecast and AppleTV need another device to "cast" or send the picture to the TV. In good WiFi they work very well. In poor WiFi there is a lag that can happen. Chromecast works well with PCs and Android phones, and AppleTV works well with iPhones, Macs, and iPads. With Chromecast and AppleTV you actually find our show on the device and then select a little icon that then connects you with your big TV screen.
The Amazon Fire Stick (and newer Smart TVs) have a browser built in. So, you can find TQS on the internet without having any other devices necessary. Then if you bookmark our login page and have the login pre-entered (saved), you can get to our show very quickly.
Of course, as with anything that is in the Apple Ecosphere, it is about 3x as expensive as the alternatives. (I own all 3 and I am an Apple user.)
Chromecast $39, Chromecast Ultra $69, AppleTV HD 32g $149, AppleTV 4K 64g $199, FireStick 4k $49 (Probably on Prime Day $39 - just a guess).
Capt'n John: I am writing this on Sunday so I don't know what the price of the Fire Stick 4k (my recommended model) will be. Alex and I have found that watching TQS on the big TV more fun. (It is a TV show!). It works great in her studio so she can play it while she works. Watch the video to get my hints on set up that will make returning and watching very easy. So, if it's a great price, this would be a good time to try it out. (By the way, it is also a great way to see the quilts we put in the blog.)
Disclaimer: TQS is not associated with Amazon and gets no commission on any sales. We just like how it allows you to see the shows.

Today we continue our selection of quilts recently displayed at the Spring Paducah 2019 show featured as part of The 14th Quilt Nihon Exhibition. The exhibit is described as:
"Organized by the Japan Handicraft Instructors' Association, the Quilt Nihon Exhibition is one of the most prestigious international quilt contests in Japan. The exhibit features 42 quilts from the "Innovative Traditional" category, which will later be exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art."
Please enjoy the sixth quilt from the exhibition by Humiko Murofushi.
Timna wasn't really interested in making portrait quilts until she saw this photo of her cousin's daughter. It was the start of a whole new journey for her in quilting. Enjoy Up Close and Personal by Timna Tarr.
