How to Make a Crazy Quilt with Allie Aller | Simplify Difficult Quilt Blocks with Barbara H Cline
(Show 1906) When Allie Aller began quilting in high school, she started with the basics, moved on to broderie perse, followed by landscapes, and then found her true passion with crazy quilting. With a large collection of doilies, feed sacks, petticoats and other antique textiles, she shares with you a unique way to give them new life, turning them into quilt blocks. Allie then combines machine stitches with embroidery, paint and beads, making it all look like hand stitching. Our second artist, Barbara Cline, a Mennonite, considers her work to be traditional, but with flair. She tackles difficult blocks and finds ways to simplify them. She demonstrates her technique for taking apart a block using templates, then reassembling the block in a much easier way. As the author of four quilting books, she definitely knows what she’s doing!
