How to Make a House Block Japanese Style with Priscilla Knoble
(Show 1505) Priscilla Knoble, a "lover of all things fiber-related", grew up in Japan as the daughter of missionaries. As a quilter familiar with the Japanese design aesthetic and fluent in the language, Priscilla emerged as the obvious (authorized) choice to translate, publish, and distribute the books of renowned Japanese quilt artist Yoko Saito. Priscilla discusses the subtle, but surprisingly complex Japanese taupe color palate and shares images from the Tokyo International Quilt Show. Priscilla also demonstrates some of Yoko's favorite tools and techniques, including how to create and hand appliqué teeny tiny bias stems, design an original House block, and stitch a fully-lined inside pocket.
