How to Make a Pineapple Quilt with Jane Hall | How to Use a Photo and Paint to Make a Quilt
(Show 1709) You might think that someone who has earned the title “Pineapple Queen” would live in a tropical climate, but Jane Hall has earned it through her amazing creations and alterations of the traditional pineapple block, which has held her interest for 25 years. She wrote the first book on the subject, and has since written many more. Jane shares some of her creations and techniques, and how she tweaks the block to invent many more designs. She also talks about her recent interest in making fabric baskets and bowls. Susan Brubaker Knapp has always been known for her nature-inspired works, and she shows some of her recent work. She then walks us through the basics of creating a piece, from taking a photo through the painting phase. She also demonstrates how her threadwork can add depth and realism to her pieces.
