Armchair travel with Roberta Horton and Mary Mashuta as they tour the world in search of fabrics for their quilts. Once these treasures are in hand, they then answer that great quilting question: "What do I do with it?" The sisters each have found their own solutions and will show you some of their quilts made with fabric from the same country but executed in a different fashion.
