Show 1505 - East Meets West: Season Your Quilts with a Japanese Flavor

Featuring: Priscilla Knoble / Yoko Saito

Posts On: August 31, 2014


We return to the Witte Museum in San Antonio, TX, to meet Priscilla Knoble, a "lover of all things fiber-related" who grew up the daughter of missionaries in Japan. 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, shares images from the Tokyo International Quilt Show, and then 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.
