Show 1007 - Simple Stitches, Super Quilts

Featuring: Pepper Cory

Posts On: March 26, 2012


Quilt-maker, teacher, and author Pepper Cory began her journey into quilting as a college student, with the yard-sale purchase of a handmade quilt. In this episode, Pepper joins us for a delightful show and tell, and to share the history and "how-to's" of the classic Japanese stitching technique called sashiko. She also presents vintage and contemporary examples of a traditional pattern from the Isle of Man that she refers to as "the original quilt-as-you-go" block, and demonstrates its assembly with a simple running stitch. Finally, Ricky provides the evocative musical background for a tour of the day's location, the Museum of Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM.
