Show 1411 - Create Old World Charm with a Quilter from "Down Under"

Featuring: Carolyn Konig

Posts On: May 26, 2014


Australian quiltmaker, designer, shopowner, and teacher Carolyn Konig's favorite quilts are those of the 18th century, which she enjoys recreating in "old world" style with hand techniques and reproduction fabrics. In this episode, Carolyn shows the tools and techniques she uses to draft the medallion center for a reproduction quilt, and how she prepares and works on her hand appliqué, including a great tip for keeping it portable. Also, Alex reviews the importance of good pressing technique, including the difference between pressing piecework vs. appliqué or Redwork.
