How to Recreate an Antique Quilt | Hexagon Quilt Blocks
(Show 1502) Canadian quiltmaker, teacher, and author Mary Elizabeth Kinch shares her love for antique quilts. She uses reproduction fabrics and carefully analyzes the fabric to create hexie blocks that make the most of the patterns and strips to create beautiful blocks. Mary Elizabeth, founder of the SPA (Small Piece Aficionado) Society, demonstrates how to tame those tiny pieces from template stage to finished block, incorporating lots of fabric and hand-piecing tips along the way. Then Alex travels to Washington County, Oregon, for a chat with textile artist Terry Grant, in which we get a glimpse at Terry's latest art quilts featuring "upcycled" men’s shirts!
