In 2007, we got a voicemail from Alex Anderson inviting us to come to Colorado to tape an episode of The Quilt Show, which was in its second season. At the time we were working hard to get the terms “modern” and “quilting” used in the same sentence and were happy to have a chance to show how solid fabrics, for example, could be used to create a different type of quilt. So Bill and I taped episode #206 showing how to use solids and piece circles and where to find inspiration for color palettes. The show also featured video of the Many Hands Blankie project that we developed in Chicago with developmentally disabled adults. Sadly, with the state budget crisis several years ago funding to transport the workers was eliminated so the blankie project no longer exists.
