Lisa Calle’s The Quilt Show 1703

Lisa Calle OCQ eventIn a rare time opportunity I watched Lisa Calle’s episode on The Quilt Show, #1703, what a great episode. Lisa’s Divide & Design class and technique does something really special, it shows the quilting decision making process like no other. While the process for the show goes to the bare bones of it all, Lisa does talk about the back and forth of trying things out, seeing if they’ll work, and trying something different. She may come back to an early part of the process and may not. Lisa keeps all of the quilt designs in tubes in her quilt studio. working with Lisas rulers

She points out that Divide & Design takes time, particularly when drawing in the feathers and fills. The layers of tracing paper serve a great purpose. Lisa uses her rulers throughout the design process, just as she would on a quilt. In this quilters view this serves two purposes 1) figuring out the design, and 2) practicing for use on the long arm or sewing machine.
On her website Lisa has a calendar with her teaching schedule. Head on over and check it out. I’ve heard that there are a few really exciting things ahead. Go Lisa!

Oh and check out her blog. The top story right now is that Lisa is teaching at Quilt Festival in Houston. Click here for Lisa’s interview.

Happy Quilting!
