"50 Cent may be a guest on 'Quilty.' Did you hear that rumor? Yeah, well, I didn't either. But if you hear it, let me know."
With that sly joke from host Mary Fons — how many times have you heard rappers and quilting in the same sentence? — we quickly realize that "Quilty," a new and sassy quilting web series from QNNtv.com, is something special.
The 6-10 minute episodes feature dressed-down quilting tips created specifically for newbies. Look for basic lessons like threading a sewing machine and more complex quilting skills, such as discerning between the bias of a fabric versus the straight-of-grain. And while there are probably more quilting how-to shows than cat-inspired fat quarter patterns, "Quilty's" casual charm, modern style and plain-language lessons are exactly what trendy rookie quilters are craving.
