Peoria-area quilting experts Laurie Baker and Georgia Gingrich invite quilters to think beyond the pattern in their Outside the Block special, produced by WTVP in Peoria. More than just a quilting how-to, the program at 10:30 am Saturday, March 1, on WILL-TV, gives both beginning and experienced quilters the creative tools needed to build a truly personalized masterpiece.

Gingrich has taught quilt making, from beginners to advanced classes, at Peoria-area shops and guilds for many years. She is also past president of Gems of the Prairie Quilt Guild and in demand as a lecturer on various quilting topics. Baker, co-author of Homestyle Quilt–Simple Patterns and Savory Recipes (with Kim Diehl), has spent the last 23 years as a technical editor and writer for the quilting, sewing and crafting industries. She is currently the president of the Washington Squares Quilt Guild and incoming president of Gems of the Prairie.

Both women will join us in the WILL-TV studio between segments of the show to discuss their passion for quilting, what it’s like to make a TV show, and their love of public television.
