While Mark barged in on Gudrun and her family, Jodie waited in the wings. As the interview finishes, Jodie asked Gudrun if she had a project in the works to share with the Quilt Out Loud! viewers. Sure enough, Gudrun vanished into her studio for a few minutes to prepare a demonstration for a holiday table runner from her newest book, “Fast and Furious.” This quilt-as-you-go rick rack runner is perfect for beginners. Since the stitching of the rick rack is also the quilting, the quilting isn’t at all intimidating. For time savers, Gudrun quilts by using fusible fleece and basting glue.
Jodie and Mark join a group of knitters in the shop’s classroom as they knit hats for homeless teenagers. As the pile in the center of the table builds, Jodie and Mark present the Scandinavian-inspired blocks they created.
