When planning the episodes for the 13-part series, projects and techniques are chosen to demonstrate many different aspects of quiltmaking. Our goal is for every episode to teach you a new trick or method that will make your own quilting easier, more accurate, and more fun. Marianne and Mary are constantly planning a new series and would love to hear your comments about previous programs and any suggestions you have for new programs!

The 2200 Series is now airing around the country. Contact your local PBS station for TV schedules.
