#9006 Hearts & Gizzards (Originally Broadcast as Pgm. #1212)
A beautiful quilt also known as Dutch Windmills! Eleanor shows how just two contrasting fabrics make a dynamic quilt. Her applique technique with fusible interfacing makes quick work of the curved arts that come together in the corners of the squares.
#9007 Blocks to Quilt (Originally Broadcast as Pgm. #1213)
Whether it's a collection of different size blocks or odds and ends that don't match, Eleanor can turn the mismatched lot into a unified quilt. She adds a mitered frame to each block to bring them to the same size, then chooses a complimentary lattice. She finishes with machine quilting, and adds a binding and label.
